    Default Bearing failure! Milodon oil pan and pickup

    Changed my 555 from dual 1150 doms to birdcatcher on alcohol. Went out yesterday to try it out.... ran like hell to end of 1/4 mile. Then oil pressure down to 10, and main bearing squeek. What pans have you guys used that have been succsesful with 8000-8100rpm range. Engine is race only for the most part. Tired of Milodons junk. Im guessing pick-up broke again as it has done before.

    Time to step up to a Stef's or Dan Olson. You might also consider an external oil pump. It has a lot of the benefits of a dry sump with less expense.

    Drag only really. Maybe 1 or 2 trips to sand bar a year(1/4 mile away from ramp) No vac pump.

    Default My $.02

    Dan Olson pan and a Titan Billet oil pump if your going wet sump.
    Titan will send the pump to Olson and they will build the pan and pickup to fit perfectly. I have no experiance with dry sumps. But this is the best combo I've found for a wet sump.

    Although a dry sump is the way to go....why don't you pull the pan and see what you have there?

    Hey, that's not what you said when you were trying to sell me that Billet Fab pan!! Seriously though, I havent' run it yet, but the Titan pump looks seriously bad ass and the pan should be an improvement over my old Milodon.

    What Bob says!!! We've run the Milodon pans with no problems, even on our blown alcohol deal. However, we learned you gotta improve the bracket that holds the pick up on at the sump end. A bit of sheet metal, an hour with a tig welder and your problems will disappear!!
    We also use a pressurized accumulator to help the pan out on shut down. Pretty much every wet sump pan I've ever used had oil pressure fluctuations on shut down.... Someday, a dry sump will find it's way on our deal....

    Man Eric, that's a LOT of stuff off the cam/timing cover. Did you beef up the cover to carry that, or is it just a standard Enderle style cover? Looks good by the way.

    NICE setup! but I can't believe you can keep an alternator belt on it!
    I had to build a direct drive off the crank, otherwise, every time I snapped
    the go pedal, the belt would just wing right off, and yes it was aligned
    properly, and it did have a large deep groove pulley
