Got my motor all stacked today and did the break in. Drained the break in oil. Going to install the new sump and refill with oil tomorrow. Then install in my bus. AWESOME day!RustabusParticipantMay 13, 2019 at 11:29 pmPost count: 1506

Looks great. Doesn’t hang down quite as far as I had expected. Good job !cookiemonster131ParticipantMay 15, 2019 at 6:43 amPost count: 131
I like the concept and the aluminum helps but it is a quandry to show marked improvement when you have so much more oil in it. Good news is, it should help with multiple factorsFranzKeymasterMay 15, 2019 at 7:23 amPost count: 2650
Cole has been taking temperature reading during long interstate type drives….On the case and heads with an infared gun. From months ago before it had an oil sump or type IV cooler.
The quantity of the oil helps no doubt…but I also think having the sump in good airflow is key.
We’ll see what the difference is soon enough. Rebuilding the engine in the middle of the tests was not planned. Worn-out 1914cc stock carb VS. fresh 1914cc w/dual carbs. Similar heads, compression ratio, and cam.
Looks badass Cole. Good work👏
