    Excellent work
    Is this a one off for yourself or will you make a run of them?

    I'd do a run or even just one (mucho $$$) . . . I bought enough material to do 4 or 5.

    That is a slick set-up, nice!

    Once I get my engine I need to do a test fit and see if there is any hope of doing something similar....I'm goign to have at least 3.7" more engine on the right side and may not have room for the pump. A similar setup with an idler gear or 2 pushing the pump to the side of the engine might be just the ticket.

    Thanks . .. the thing on the back of the pump is an air/oil seprator . .. if you loose that you can gain another couple of inches at least FYI.

    How important do you think the separator is?? It seems like a good thing to have, but I honestly haven't done any digging on the whole dry supm subject yet and I'm more than a little ignorant.

    The thought that popped into my head on the way home from work is since the 400 is a timing chain engine, and the chain is way plenty strong, I wonder if that could be used to drive the oil pump??? I can't wait to actually see this engine.

    I had room so I went with it . . . I think there's external seperators also. I also remember something about different style scavenge pumps (roots, g-rotor, spur . . . don't know which) creating more foam than others.

    I was told 360 uses a chain. The original 308 dry sumps use a chain only for the scavenge section . .. pressure section runs off the gear like the stock setup.

    I wish I was waiting for something like an engine to show up . . . time to go over to ebay :)

    I think what you need is a spare crank and rods and I know just where you can find a set for sale.

    No wait, what you need is a set of ported QV heads....and I just so happen to know where to get those too:)

    Don't tempt me . . . I'm already a pack rat . . . the law of entropy as it applies to "stuff" . . . junk expands to meet available space :)
