Re: p2348

what Side oiler system are you using? I'm thinking about pulling my motor this winter and convert.

Aviaid. The pan, the pump, the tank and the pulleys. I'll be installing it once I get the transaxle.

Re: p2348

Well the first attempt at dropping the engine in resulted in contact between the dry sump pulley and the firewall. It is exceptionally tight in here if you do a dry sump. With Olthoff's serpentine belt system I would have plenty of room without the sump. First photo shows my initial setup. After talking with Dennis, I cut off both the sump shaft and the shaft on the crank pulley to move the gears in as far as they can go. We'll see how it goes this weekend. Can't wait to prime the dry sump....

I'm trying to simplify my oil lines a bit and have a -12AN T adapter. I'm trying to an adapter that the oil temp sensor can connect to that will plug into the -12AN T. This Fragola adapter was supposed to accomplish it but the temp sensor is too big and the probe would bottom out too quickly (this adapter almost looks like a -6AN female to -12AN female). Any ideas would be welcome

Re: p2348

An illness set me back about a month. Just getting back to it. Engine finally in. The dry sump pulleys need to be as short as possible. Even then, the nut on the crank dips into the hole in the firewall and rubs. This necessitates cutting it out a bit so when the engine heaves, you don't hear a "grinding". There's about 3/8"-12" of clearance in front of the dry sump pulley. The compartment is really really tight. I would have been done a month ago if not for the dry sump, but where's the fun in that. Lessons learned:

1. Dennis' serpentine setup is excellent. It fits cleanly and puts both the alternator and AC on the right, freeing up precious room on the left for radiator hose routing. Even without the dry sump, it is a cleaner install and the whole thing including the water pump pulley will fit under the stock cover with no cutting.
2. I had to do a lot of finessing to get the radiator hose outlets on the left of the firewall to come low enough to clear the dry sump belt. They need to be in the lower half of the opening you see.
3. Just plan on opening the middle hole if you're using a dry sump. There's no way around it. Dennis does it (didn't know that until after I made the decision to cut up my precious car)
4.

Re: p2348

Priming the dry sump could be a lesson in bloody knuckles or cursing loud enough to offend the neighbors. Here will be my saving grace:
