Yes, Jim's got headers so he's running the "early" oil line... you've got the later one that loops around / under the rear of the engine, that gets in the way when you install headers.

And definitely heed his advice regarding the tank fitting, mine buggered the threads upon REMOVAL, and I had to finagle a work around to ensure it sealed.

also, it's quite possible but hard to really tell from your picture that any oil spilled during fill-up or oil filter removal could easily have drizzled down through the holes / seal in the tin and gunk up all of which resides below - check the right rear frame rail in the engine bay for tell tale signs...

good luck
