Actually I missed something. It is a wet sump and I had started the sentence with something too wordy that initially read "not a dry sump engine." Thanks for pointing this out -- I corrected my post above.The 2600 is a dry sump engine? I must have missed something.
I must say I'm a little confused. Everybody I know knows that baffling your sump is required to track/race your car ... I guess not all cars require this but surely after the first engine failure this was considered, especially as you appear to know the cause.I feel "so soon old, and so late smart" when I suddenly come across something as simple as a "windage tray" to solve such a long nagging problem. I have some vague memory of having heard that word, but never realized what it was or why it would have been so wonderful all these years. Maybe Myron Cottrell of the High Performance farm (I guess that is what HP means to him?) who finally perfected the spin on oil filter for 1900 and 102/2000 engines to include the filter saving pressure relief spring on the intake side might want to construct some of these for us. Let's all ask him. If he does one, it will be perfect. Myron Cottrell = [email protected] in Chaska MN.
