You probably just need to shorten the X pipe. Maybe Jeff or someone else can give you the dimensions of a 128 return pipe.
Yeah I just shortened it to where it allowed the oil pan to sit flush but now I don’t know if it’s long enough to pick up any oil only if the pan is basically completely full to an inch under the rim.You probably just need to shorten the X pipe.

I have 8 pickups from various 1.3 engines. Is there a casting number on the pickup which can tell us what isThat extra pipe (on the side) is only to allow any excess oil from the block breather to drain back into the oil pan. It really doesn't need to go all the way down. You will be fine with it trimmed.
However the other one, on the oil pump, is different. It NEEDS to be in the right place to pick-up oil and supply the engine. That's why there are different ones to match the different shaped pans. So you will need to find a oil pump pick-up for a 128. Should be someone with a spare one here, post a listing in the "for sale" section.
Carl, i suppose you mated the 1500 motor to the 4speed 128 trans..correct? was this ok when driving on the road, or the gearing was a tad too short?I have had two 128s and an SL that had all been converted to a 1500 X motor and the 128 radiator was more than adequate. As Doc has noted, the X radiator would not be an easy swap into a 128.
I have an x19 1500 block.On the X1/9 1300 block, this port is threaded to accept the dipstick extension fitting shown. The fitting should be screwed all the way down into the block with no spacer used.
The 128 1300 block does not use this fitting, & the block port is not machined/threaded for such a fitting. The 128 dipstick fits directly into the port in the block.
