The pump is ok Jonas.It`s just the axle that is broken.Spoke to Pauter on friday and they needed a week to send me a new one and 44dollars plus shipping.The problem was that someone had probarbly used some tool (not the right one)to turn it over.Hopefoly i`l get it this week.

You suck the sump from two extended sump plates? Why in two locations?
Why not use the internal sucking tube?

Thanks,

Hi Wally.Have seen something simular oil-sutup like mine before.Frallan Reichel have used his setup with good results for some years now.So i made it like his.I`m no engine-expert so i look at others or ask if i dont know myself.Perhaps there is a better way to do it???Image

Looking to the picture makes me disagree. But I´m not engine expert either.

Nice looking work.

Metzger...get off your lazy butt!. LOL!. What kind of power do you think you'll have to the wheels?. How heavy is your Ghia?.

Thanks,

E.

Jonas, leave the bat at home. BTW, don't tell me you guys play baseball out there?.
