WLA/45 flathead questions

I have a few specific questions with regards to standard WLA
The front chain oiler adjustment is 1/16" (0.0625) washer, plus as many 0.002" shims as required to achieve adequate lube, without the drips on the floor. Is there a ballpark as to how many shims normally ????
Does it apply also to the rear ??
The fitting that screws into the scavenger pump for the rear chain oiler pipe, what is the thread size ???
I fitted a screw into the trans mount stud to facilitate oil drain when servicing, which of the 3 bolts is the lower most point in the trans case, the one by itself ????
Also where is a recommended place to buy 0.002" oiler shims, and the oil pipe nipples for the feed and return pipes?? Screws onto #3577-15

Re: WLA/45 flathead questions

In regards to the lowest point for the drain it is the one by itself farthest to the right. I use a suction gun thru the fill hole myself.
