OK, so i have a little change of plan, and some info. i will be chopping up a steel pan, and making a prototype. i posted a want add, but if any one has a FWD pan i think that's the best one to start with.

i also started working on things last night. i know some of you would kick me in the nuts for this, but after careful consideration i chopped my oil pump in half on the band saw. i also did some checking into how things flow. now that i have an idea of how the in and out will work, i can get started on a pan. also, now that i chopped up the pump, I'm thinking i will have to have a plate machined. i was going to just weld a plate inside the pump housing, and then thread my fittings in, but I'm starting to think that wont work. i found a 3 stage pump, and a bunch of stuff from an old friend. i still have to come up with all my own brackets, but at least now i have something to do/ start with. i will post up some pics when i get parts from the machine shop. damn i wish i had a mill. $$$$$$$$$$$

hay, check it out, i found a spell checker!

ok, so i have been working on my oil pump block off, and new inlet for the dry sump system. here's a pic of the block now that i have it cut, and drilled to bolt to the eng.

i just need to drill the inlet now, and it will be done. it was much easier then i thought it would be, the only real challenge is drilling the tube for the return. i will post a pic of that once its drilled, taped, and ready to go. im stripping my pan today, and will start cutting soon.

So that only for the inlet to get oil into the block right?

Thicker than I expected, but looks good.

yea, its only the IN port. it is only 2.5" thick, but will end up about 2" when its complete. i left it thick so the final finish wouldn't get damaged while i was putting it on, and taking it off 1000 times during the build. i will be taking some off the top, and a little off the bottom. the pan will have tubes welded in the bottom of it that scavenge the oil.

Josh,

I don't think this guy is around any longer. I believe he was one of those gung-ho, flash in the pan, kind of guys that comes & go's through these forums every once in a while. He had big dreams, MT pockets & unrealistic expectations. When some of the more knowledgeable guys tried to help him out, he would get mad & wouldn't listen. Last we heard from him, was something along the lines of the next time we hear from him it will be in CRAWL magazine.

As far as the axles... I think he was planning to use Pettibone Forklift type axles.

I just noticed he came back and deleted the pictures, here and on your forum.

That's just BS.


He was on your site in March, though he didn't post.

Well that li'l weazel... I don't recall any of his pics being much more than mostly out of focus.

Im still here, just don't post much any more. You guys all think your know-it-all's and if someone has an idea that doesn't fit in your box you out cast him by saying nothing he is doing will work.

I originally had a pair of rockwells under the car, but they are way to tall. I designed, AND BUILT a dry sump system so I could eliminate the oil pan issue, and it works pretty good. I deleted my pix, they belong to me and I will do with them an I please. They were "out of focus" because at that time I only had a camera phone.

The axles I will be using are out of a tractor and are basically indestructible. Im working on other things right now so I had nothing to post. I put a 500 in my Malibu, have built 3 Jeeps, Im buying a house, and building a crew cab GMC top kick. I have a lot going on and the rock crawler is not a priority at this point. I have so much going on in fact that I actually have better things to do then sit at a computer all day posting on a forum. Imagine that!

Josh, Im located in Colorado springs.

So you all know what I've been up to I posted some pix for you.





Pix aren't photographer quality so I hope there good enough for you. The Malibu turned out just the way I wanted it. I left everything rusted, paint flaking off, and greasy. I wanted a sleeper in every sense of the word. Even when you open the hood you don't see anything special!
