Oil Pan Idea question??

Okay I have been trying to figure out a way to keep the iol pump happy at almost all running angles. If you have ever seen a nodwell you know how they drive. They have oil pan similar to this one with a modified pick-up at the centre of the pan with some baffles to keep the oil at the pickup.

Is there anyone that builds such a pan without having to run a dry sump? Or should I just use the stocker flange as a template and build my own like this.

This is a no brainer.....not even a need for a funky shaped oilpan. All you need is a well designed trap door baffle setup along with a windage tray (not screen) and you are good to go. I run this setup.....I filled my pan with oil while it was off the engine and the trapdoor box around the pickup remained full of oil tilted at every angle except the obvious, upside down. Canton uses this design on their race pans.

I just called and ordered one. They've got quite a few different ones that'll work for my application - 15-100T, 15-250T, 15-260T. I called the Tech line and they were real helpful.

Nope no pics.....hell, I barely know how to get on the internet. Its easy to make your own trapdoor baffle setup but Canton will have whatever you want. Just so you guys can picture it though, basically, you weld a box into the bottem of your pan (around where the pickup goes with wings coming of the four corners to direct oil to the box. The box has four doors in it, each which has a flapper plate and spring....lets oil in, won't let it out. Windage tray on top keeps oil in its place and off the crank. Weld in a crank scraper while your at it. All of this is easy to do, even on a stock pan put really its best to have a deep sump to play with. I run setups like this on all my wheelers and have never had failure from oil starvation at extreme angles.
