    Default BBC New Century Billet Oil Pan

    A little project I've been working on for a screw blown deal.
    New Century block
    540 cu in
    PSI screw going on it

    This mounts the Dailey Engineering 6 stage pump, with oil/air separator, directly to the pan

    There will be a " lower manifold " to be machined yet.

    Started with 136 lbs,, it now is 13 lbs, no magnets or pump.

    Damn Wizbang, that's amazing. Bet you had to do a lot of designing before you started cutting that chunk of aluminum.

    What bolts to the five holes on the outlet of each bay drain? Wild guess... 2 stroke reed valve?

    This Sunday we are going to try and finish the "lower manifold " as we call it.
    There is a whole lower piece of aluminum, that will be machined with all those #10 bolts, that will have the "intake" runners to connect the scavenge pockets to the inlet of the pump. This plate will be o-ringed to the pan.

    I'll post some pics of it when we get it machined.

    At this point, there is 13 hours of machine time in it, and a "bunch" of hours of spare time, doing the model and programming !

    ( I'm very lucky to have friends )

    Taking a little more time than expected ( the machine is tied up on airplane parts )

    Going to make some more chip soon with the lower manifold !

    Wow that's cool.

    I have a Century block. Went through a few fabricated aluminum pans that all eventually had leaks and problems.
    It's one thing to have an oil pan on a race boat that only runs minutes.
    Quite another to expect it to last 50 hrs + a year on a lake boat.
    That billet pan would work no matter which direction the engine was mounted in the boat.

    I eventually fabricated a stainless oil pan.

    Very nice, I thought about machining this one from stainless,,,, but, the material would have been spendy.

    I bought the sheetmetal pan from Lowell,,, had it polished, never bolted it on,, just going to sell it,.

    We made some headway on the New Century billet oil pan today. This side is now " roughed " to + .050 material. Next to turn it over and machine the other side ! Started with 46 lbs of matl, now it is at 18.6 lbs !
