If that Enhancement has got you I have a question. I am thinking about expanding the sump on my '73 by taking the bottom 4 inches of the sump and adding something like a 4 inch by 8 inch (full length of the sump) on each side. this should add about 3 quarts to the capacity and while doing this I'll add a baffle to keep the oil from all sloshing back.
Any thoughts on this or any thing you have successfully done like this to add capacity?

Sounds like a good idea. Have you seen what Courtney's old Flash oil pan looked like ??

I know they moved the steering around from year to year not sure when ..
And he may have moved it on his for that reason..

That pan was in his 70 2 door Fleetwood prior to going to a tube chassis

Made in New Mexico or Arizona not sure anymore ..

Some local place Courntey gets them from..

I don't see using it on the Banana in cause of my oil pump/alternator/water pump layout ..I would need to remake the setup ..

I want to sell mine if your interested

How deep (front to rear) is it and what is the approximate diameter of the body?

Oh, and what is the shaft diameter? What I really need to know is whether or not a six rib serpentine pulley would fit on that shaft?

Never mind. I thought you had one sitting in your garage or somewhere since you were offering it for sale.

What I have/had in mind was to use that vacuum pump instead of an idler pulley in my serpentine setup. Hell, I already own the damned pulley so there is no added cost there; but IF THAT PUMP turned out to be a useable size it might have taken the place of the idler pulley and provided the added benefit of clearing out some of the usual blow-by that can come with forced induction.

Not critical but thanks anyway.

Julius, I used one that was made here in ABQ but I don’t think he makes them anymore. Moroso or one of the other manufacturers should have those answers.

This is part my bad so I rewrote him with better explanation. But it does seem you can't get this pump anymore

I have a little place close to the drag strip on the Garden Island. The coffee is great, and the people are nice.
