thats properly nice. what have you done with the oil pump feed? i can see the hole in the inside of the pan and im just guessing it will be a press fit to whatever you do with the existing oil pump supply..

Tom:

'70 Norton Commando 750! Ah, yes, I had a '71 for many years. It was a torque beast. My '75 850, owned since new, needs to get out more.

The pan looks stellar.

The oil pump feed is well designed to be leak free. Many designes were reviewed, but the requirement for leak free and ease of assy drove our decisions.

We will most likely only sell the pan and the pickup, as people have pump and other part preferences.

Location of the actual sump is up to the designer of the car.....polar moment vs weight distribution is very debatable topic.

Cheers,
Marc

Funny you should say that. My neighborhood is full of cottonwood trees.
All weekend it looked like it was snowing, usually lasts a couple of days. During this time work in the garage is out since having the garage door open any longer than necessary will fill the garage with the white crap from the trees.

Why spend the money on a CNC'd pan? So many dry sump pans are welded aluminum to a standard flange. Just have a water jet cut mounting flange and weld the pan together from that. A bit more dirty labor, but much cheaper.

Do PACE sell them directly? (Couldn't see any 928 info on their website)
Or are these the systems that Gantspeed sells?

Pace products make the dry sump kit or bits for gnatspeed, if you were to buy from pace they will allow you to buy bits at a time gnat will not.
