    Default Milodon pickup (again)

    I know it has been discussed. I never paid attention. What did you all do to fix your broken pickup tab issues?<BR>Round 1.. a buddy won, oil in the boat. Apparently the tab broke off and punched 2 holes in the pan while it was flying around.<BR>He also said he is open to buying a new pan (and pickup) which one to get?<BR>Wags<BR><BR>Oh, BBC, v-drive, hydro, drag.

    Wags, the problem with the Milodon pickup has always been the fact that they use pef plate instead of woven cloth for the screen. The perf doesn't seems to flow oil as well as the screen, specially heavy oil, and I feel it aerates the oil more than a screen.
    Not certain what you mean by the tabs. I would open up the thing I see what you have. There is nothing really weak about the construction of the pickup. In fact its build better than many. The box is tig'd to the tube. and the pump end has a machined piece that fits in the pump pretty well. Its really not that bad of a pickup, except the perf plate. they do make a HD version of some pickups that has a brace that bolts on with one of the pump cover cap screws.

    I welded A tab to the tube to make a Triangle brace about 17 years ago. I'd show you a pic.......But its in my boat soaking in 60wt!lol Is this an OLD style pickup? I do believe the " NEW" ones are made better now also a better crank scraper.I do have the windage tray on my work bench! It wasn't needed 17years ago!

    I keep forgetting that the drag boys are paying with a much longer pickup.

    That was one of the better build pickups to begin with, with a much better routing than most.
    Very nice job on that piece Scott

    Well, it's not my money or engine, so to me almost nothing. He is in my class, so even less. LOL
    He is a buddy, though.
    I have an armando piece. I'm pretty happy with it. I rushed him (I know), it is what I wanted. Oil pressure stays up.

    I'll pass along the tab thing. Also the new pan thing.
    Thanks guys.

    I had the mounting tab break off the Milodon pickup tube also, so on the 2nd repair I mounted the pickup box itself down,




    It's held for 2 years now.
    I can't figure out how a windage tray could be in the pan with a pickup like this in a Y block.

    Steve
    Dad has an old Aviad pan and the pickup has a brace that bolts to the windage tray/ main studs on the pickup end. Also the pan is notched for the tube all the way down the middle so if something does happen hopefully it rests on the baffles and not go straight to the bottom. I'm told Armando built the Aviad pans and now has his own set up. His prices are good for off the shelf or you can have one custom made.

    I would definitely check these out

    Hey Steve.. I just picked up a custom 14 qt Stefs pan and pickup for $850 shipped. Nice people to deal with and real nice workmanship. Think it was about 3 weeks turn around.
