Bali was talking about that way cool Moore pan, which I have and have never failed to speak highly of.

SOLD!! TURN KEY 140 HP REBUILT ENGINE F0R SALE
Posted by: tomkeo ()

The turn-key 140 engine is sold and on its way to Ohio. Thank you for your kind comments.
Since there was so much interest in the Moore oil pan I'm posting a few more pictures, one showing the inside. The heat transfer fins on the Moore pan have a lot more surface area than the cones that the OTTO pan use. I worked with Jerry Moore (Sr) at Hughes Aircraft for many years. He was an electrical engineer and a very talented pattern maker, craftsman, and Corvair enthusiast.
JerryM (Jr) has all the patterns, tooling for the pans, matching valve covers, and more. Let him know you're interested.

Some things I particularly like about that pan- quite a bit lighter than a OTTO pan, a LOT more ground clearance, and the fact they have a nice flat gasket surface. My old OTTO pan had lots of hits on it at the rear when I took it off, and wasnt too happy about the nasty warp in it. The pan was so stout it bent the block gasket surfaces to conform to the pan!

How do you drain the "Pick-up Sump"?

You dont- the dimensions for the pan in that area are not significantly than the Otto pan, but because it is sloped more towards the rear, holds a bit more oil. If you want to get every last drop of the old oil out, you would drill a few small holes at the front part (closest to the drain plug) and near the bottom of the pan. I've seen this done on other pans so it is not unique to the Moore pan. Its just a real impractical thing to cast in. Easy to do if it bugs you!

Mr Moore is on the forum as JerryM. I wrote to him several times about his interest in making some more pans. There was not enough interest in making enough quantity to justify the expense of making a run. He has a vendor who would cast these for him. There would have to be a lot of interest. Put your money where your mouth is; you might have to buy five pans and find some friends to buy a few.

I've never met Tom and only had a brief phone call with him, BUT if he rebuilds engines only half as good as he builds crates and ships an engine I have no worries at all on the engine I just received.

I couldn't bust up the crate so I took it completely apart to use the wood for other projects and such. There is literally over 2 pounds of screws(yep, I weighed the bag). Fedex could've dropped it off the truck and the engine wouldn't have been damaged.

Tom: THANK YOU!! Top notch and the attention to detail on the engine is great!! I found a home for my Nash fan. smileys with beer
