    Default Ok after reading about Oil pans

    and not wanting to spend the $ on a new oil pan, what should I do about the windage tray?
    I have a Gen 6 502 witha Dooley pan without a windage tray that bolts to the mains.

    should I add one ?
    This engine should never see over 6K RPM

    not sure, when I pulled it down thats what I found.
    It does have the plate and trap door mounted to the pan
    but nothing mounted to the engine, any suggestions?

    don't know exactly what you mean by a plate, is this a jet with the pump to back of the boat? does the plate run the length of the pan except where the pump pickup enters? fastened to the pan right on top of the baffle gates? That is your windage tray!

    Use that pan as it is. The windage tray that bolts to the mains (louvered sheet metal) is typicly worse than none at all.

    I heard some talk awhile ago that some pro builders like the windage tray as far away from the rotating assembly as possible (bounce back) but of course over the oil level. Therefore a deep pan and a windage tray in pan and/or off long studs.

    Sound reasonable ?

    sounds good, I will pre fill it and make sure the full line is below the tray.

    That's not really a wndage tray, it's more a slosh baffle, but it's better than nothing. Ditto what Warp said on the tray that bolts to the mains...they're worse than nothing in this case.

    The windage tray in all applications keeps the crank and rods from pulling the oil out of the sump. In a boat it also prevents the sloshing oil from coming in contact with the crank. At Stef's we like a minimum of 1/2" and a max of 1" from the rotating assembly.

    JUst spoke with Dooley,
    he suggested I dump this pan, was only built for stock engine applications.

    I was going to post something to that effect put didn't want to bust your wallet. That pan is pretty much just a modified stock pan with an added sump for volume, and like Steel said that more a slosh baffle than anything else. There is pretty much zero oil control with that thing. You really should think about something else(except another Dooley). And remember a GOOD pan is not going to be a cheap.
