Done some googling - quite a variety of styles and opinions. I think the style you describe - with the lip - looks best for me. The versions with flaps seem a little too complex.
Look on the Turbosport forum in Google
Mark the sides of the large round hole for the pickup pipe extend down into the well about 50mm (forgot that bit)
Mark I have an RS2000 alloy winged sump which has a baffle which is just a flat plate across the deep part of the sump ,the hole is just big enough to let the pickup pipe through complete , from memory about 100mm dia or about, no other holes in it apart from the 4 fixing holes , the oil runs back in via small gap around it and of course the big ole in the middle
Hi Paul - I have a non-standard (looks home made) winged sump and think I may have been running with too little oil. As the engine is out now I will measure the sump to see what the capacity is up to a height that just clears the rotating crank. I can also add baffles - can you remember what configuration you used for baffles, and what size holes to allow the oil to flow to the pickup?
first time I took my B+ to landow trackday it sufferd oil surge and wrecked the crank and 1 con rod, If you are useing you car for motor sport events I would surgest a winged sump and baffle it. I did this andthe the following year had no problems,
Interesting. That's a bit like bicycle helmets where they reckon a similar thing happens - in particular other road users take more care of an unprotected cyclist then they do of one with all the gear, apparently.
I don't think that I noticed a lot of restraint being exercised in your Dutton though, it looked rather hairy to me. I like a track with a wide run off area (although I've only ever come off twice).
