Want that authentic period correct deep sump pan for your Model T race car, speedster, or GOW job? Put off by the modern look of the cast aluminum ones currently available? If so this is what you need. This old school alternative is a Maxwell 4 cylinder oil pan. Laid on top of the stock Model T crankcase inspection pan it’s almost an exact match, short by approximately 1” and of course you to re-drill either the Maxwell pan or the Model T crankcase to match. The oil plug is approx. 5” from the flange face. Price is almost the same as the “new ones” in the catalogs $125.00, a little extra for the authenticity and patina, plus shipping (weighs in at approx. 10 lbs.)
Going on ebay, don't miss your chance to own an original piece of Model T Ford speed equipment.
Joe.. sent you a pm but have not heard from you.
This was on Facebook as well. At that time I asked how does the oil get to the flywheel area to get thrown around?
I suspect it needs some additional plumbing. Often they have a short pipe between the deep pan and the front of the flywheel area, but that can take all kind of welding....
Sale pending. Perhaps the attached picture will better explain it's use. This is on Art Gerricks BB Rajo which still exist today in essentially the same condition as it was built in 1951.
Is this still available?
David, sale is pending, if it falls through I'll contact you. Thanks, Joe
