Woolf aircraft . Thanks for that ref. I will call this coming week and get some bent mild steel tubing. .875" ID . What radius shall I order and what did you find to use as a pickup screen ? I was looking in McMaster carr for round wire screen mesh of diff dimensions. Screens keep out debris but also are a big restriction. This is not a Race engine but will be flogged at the dragstrip often and will see lots of high speed long distance driving. I will be spending a bit of time on the cooling system , (water and oil) engine, trans, and diff. The pan will be a cut and welded steel pan that started life as a Mid sump as that is all I can find right now. Pump will be a smoothed out Melling unit. I would love to go with a Titan but I am trying not to go hog wild on the spending.
