Well, as the originator of all this, I think Brent has it exactly!
Back to the starting point ... use the combination of filter to do the
filtering and magnetic sump plug to collect the metal debris - and
also to act as a tell-tale for inspection. The system works fine, and
has worked on these engines for the last 50 years.  I guess one could
fit an extra drain  at the front end of the sump for a second magnet
but it really is not worth it.

> Which brings us back full circle.  The use of the magnetic oil drain
plug.  A piece that is removed every oil change, inspected, cleaned
and put back in.  Putting a magnet on the oil pan would collect
particles in the low flow area and trap these particles to the
magnetized area.
