Just been chatting to fruity and he's come up with a brilliant suggestion seing as my car will mostly be used on track days, something i should have thought of myself really, but baffling the sump.
now i know he's done his and as it works well on his rally car then i'm all for just copying his design, with his permission of course ;)

anyone else care to chip in with alternative designs?

pics or links would be great, dimensions even better :thumbs:

Ive thought about that myself Kev, for the engine i am building at the moment! its going to be a short stroke 1600cc high comp pistons, balanced flowed heads and cams!! should be a screamer!!:)
Pumps on there way Kev, 3 crank bolts in the box too, the pumps were already boxed and waiting to go, so just cut a hole in the box and threw them in!:lol: So hopefully you will find them amongst the newspaper! :thumbs:

nice pics ad, will try and decipher them later :D not too sure about extending the capacity of the sump, know it is an advantage to have more oil volume and more surface area to cool the oil but would be a bit worried about getting a 100% leak-free seal on the welded extensions :rolleyes:

liking the little door hinges for simple trap doors though :cool:

that engine you're building sonds interesting woody, certainly will be a rev happy one by the sounds of things :cool:

cheers for the pump too, brilliant :thumbs:

send me a pm for payment details :thumbs:

Hi kev e-mail with pics sent

I have done a large capacity properly baffled sump and it was a pain to make leak free but worked well. The design I have sent you the pics for is much simpler but has generally worked well fro me in both 8V and 16V guise.

I also have an ex Auto-delta aluminium baffled sump. Never got round to fitting it as the std manifold fouls it.

good luck rsfruitbat

yep, had a look mate. like the look of what you've done :cool:

simple but effective :thumbs:

only thing i was worried about was creating something that would foul on the crank as it rotated rendering it all useless, but i guess as long as you keep things below the level of the shelf in the sump then things can be done however you feel :cool:

Know what you mean thats why the pipes are bent forward.
They also angle down a bit to keep as close to the baffle plate as you can.
