    I just had the idea of instead of cutting a new hole in the oil pan to just use a "T" at the drain hole and cap it off.

    Would this work, I was thinking no because the hole is angled down and would probably back the oil up.

    Just an idea. Input needed.

    its also on the wrong side (the back) and is under the oil level.

    you want it as high up as possible, above the oil level in the pan, on the front.
