Howdy! I'm ready to measure up for my engine mounts, but have a clearance problem. The sump I got with the motor ('64 chev) fouls at the front of the rear part where the pickup is. Was there a lower profile(especially at the flywheel /oil pickup end) made, and what cars had them originally?Thanks!

The sump hits the R&p; mount. I know I could move it back towards the F/end (L300) but at the moment viewed from above with wheels straight the steering arms are at 90 degrees to the tie rods. It probably doe'snt make a lot of difference if I move the R&p; forward, but a sump change would leave my steering alone.

An inch or so in the horizontal plane would make no difference. The vertical plane is the critical aspect.

The question I did not ask ,was how much intrusion is involved?.Pep,s suggestion is one practical way out,the other is to notch the sump,or a bit of both.There may be then, either way, minimal affect to sump capacity,and no need to start mucking around with the oil pickup..........Frank.

If I move the R&P; mount forward an inch or so, (horizontally) I reckon I will be O.K. It only interferes a small amount, so a bit of surgery might be the go. Otherwise I have heard that the sump which was fitted to the HK-t-g chev v8's didn,t have such a deep "well" at the rear? anyone confirm this? Thanks

Do not know about that one 36 roadster,but you can bet that if it is true,they will be as scarce as hen,s teeth,and expensive.......Frank.

I do know the HQ-WB and the H-KTG had two different shaped sumps due to the differences in the steering setups.

I may be wrong but, from memory the HQ-WB had the steering at the front of the crossmember and the earlier cars had the steering at the rear, the ealier sump should clear the steering. You will need the early model oil pick up though.

Hope this helps

Craig
