    Default My oil pan thread

    I picked up this BBC pan for next to nothing at the Big 3 swapmeet in San Diego a couple years ago. My intention was to use it in the boat when I build a new engine. Not even sure if it will fit in the hull but ir was cheap enough. It has obviously been hit or dropped on one end. After learning some new things bout oil pans thanks to some fine folks on this forum, I thought I would dig it out and post some pics.
    I don't know what brand it is. All I can find is what I assume is a date, 8-00.
    Seems like it has a nice kickout and nice trap doors. However, it has a flat windage tray, and no baffle at the back of the oil pump area. I also did not get the pickup with the pan.
    Comments?

    It looks like a Dan Olson pan I have. If it is you scored big as that is about a $700 pan. I will take a picture of my pan this evening a post it for you later.

    I don't know for sure but you need to check to see how big of crank you can swing in it!Most are 43/8 I don't know just a thought!

    3.76" stroke so definitely no problems there. Going to go on a single turbo 427.

    So, is there a better windage tray I can/should use in this pan? Do you think I need to worry about the lack of a baffle at the back of the pan for a jet boat application? 19' Daytona.

    Either an Olsen or a Jeff Johnston as it has billet end rails and seal radius. More then likely a drag pan due to the baffling directing the oil to the passenger rear corner. The starter notch, and it may be the pic, doesn't look that large. I recommend when you use it to use silicone over the entire gasket surface. These fabbed pans are ridged and need some "shock absorbing" and the silicone will provide that. You should be able to e-mail the pictures to Olsen or Jeff and they can make a pickup to work. Worst case we can at Stef's.

    Thanks for the info.
    How about the tray? This thing will make plenty of power, so it isn't a huge concern. But if I can make a tray change and pick up some additional oil control and power associated with it, why not?

    We sell our screen in kit form so you can retro fit the pan or get a louvered windage tray sold by other. Either way I would put some type of windage kit in it.

    It is a Olson pan for a jet or snout driven v-drive. Its the same pan as the one in the pic below. And Olson has pickups on the self for that pan. It requires mini starter and 168 tooth wheel. Nothing else will fit. Don't put it on a flywheel forward v-drive or you will be buying some very expensive motor parts. It's a good pan and they work!

    Actually Chris, that is the most common setup in circle racing. The G forces throw the oil to the passengers side. Some "T" sump pans have the pickupin the middle of the right sump. But that pan is very popular in circle boats. Your right about the small notch for the starter. Like I said in the previous post, 168 fly wheel and a mini starter only!

    Here are some pics of my Olson pan. It is for a BBC, jet boat. It is similar, but not exactly the same as yours. However, I do believe yours is also an Olson.

    I tell ya, one thing I do like about the Olson pans is the tubes for the bolts that are inside the kick-out. You can fiddle f*** aroiund for an hour trying to get those bolts in the holes and started, but one slip and without the tube, the bolt's in the pan. Sometimes you can fish it out with a magnet, but most of the time, pan comes back off, retrieve the bolt, start again...

    s2k1...you definitely want to retrofit a screen into that pan if you can. Look into a scraper as well.
