    Default Dooly 12 Qt Oil Pan??

    I Know It Has Been Cover On Here At Least Once Befor, But I Could Not Find It. How Much Clearence Should There Be Between The Pan And The Pickup? I Have Between .55 And .600 With The Kids Playdo And The Cork Gasket. The Reason I'm Asking Is Last Fall When I Finaly Got On The Water, It Would Lose Oil Presure At Wot. What Do You Guys Think.

    3/8" of an inch off the bottom is perfect.

    Don how much oil are you putting in that 12qt pan? 12 qt's is likely too much, and your airating the oil. Chris is right on, on the clearance of the pick up.

    It'll be OK if you don't care about your oil pressure.

    The pick up clearance needs to be within 1/4" to 3/8" from the pan bottom, otherwise it will vortec and swirl at the pick up and you "won't have any OP at WOT"...Do you have the factory style dipstick? If yes, run it one quart down on the stick, most of the time will be very close...I have seen anyways.

    I Modified The Dipstick So The Full Line Is Level With The Bottom Of The Windage Tray. So Run It A Quart Low From There, And Drop The Pickup Tube. Thanks A Lot!! You Guys Rock!!!!

    I bet your rotating assembly is swimming with that much out. The engine is at a slight angle, say 5 degrees, this would put the oil level above the windage. Might try dropping a couple qts after you get the pick up straightened out.
