Clean the hell out of your pan. We glass bean stuff at my work and that stuff is hard to remove and hard to see. Personally I hate the stuff for that. You clean and clean, tack cloth, wash rinse and it still shows up on paint jobs.

That will look nice.

I would hate to see what a couple of bits of glass would do to the inside of a motor.

I washed my cam tower for a good hour performing rinse and repeat after blasting it.

That looks great

I can't remember with the LR baffle do you still install the plastic portion in the pan or does the baffle replace that?

Beautiful welding but that ring does exactly nothing and in worst case it becomes restriction.

LOL, that's a bit contradictory isn't it.....?

If it was doing exactly nothing, how could it become a restriction....?

I use the same ring....., it lowers the pickup point of suction approximately 1 inch lower in the pan to a source less likely to cause pump cavitation.

The remaining cross section of the uncovered screen is several times that of the suction pipe.

Sustained 6800 rpms on track with stable oil pressure proven.

How does it lowers the suction point by 1 inch if suction point is already tke lowest point of the pickup the only thing lower is the mesh Which has recessed space in oil pan. If that ring is welded just the right way it will touch the oil pan arround the recess in pan and actually seal the oil away from pickup.
