Moore Oil Pan - market survey
Posted by: JerryM ()
Date: June 14, 2022 07:02AM

I've had several people contact me about producing more "Moore" pans.
To remain true to the original materials, processes and quality is expensive. The pans currently on the market do not compare.

Who would consider buying these?
How much would you expect these to cost?

I would buy one and pay about 20-30% more than the Otto.

More than that, I would need to be convinced that the quality would be worth the extra costs, such as some specific details on lower oil temps, more heat transfer, etc.

Thanks!

I would be interested in getting one based on Tom K.s recommendation. I have limits on price but I am
willing to pay. Keep us posted.

I would buy another, just for my next engine, I think I paid 200-250 for it, and felt it very worthwhile.

I will take one and I don't care how much...it will be worth it.

Now I know why The Stig wanted Gem's Moore oil pan back.

Without doubt I am in for one. Don't know anything about pricing so I would just go along with the general consensus.

What about valve covers? Would they also be offered?

The Moore pan does look pretty good, but the pics don't show the inside. I have a Clarks finned pan & am impressed with the inner baffling and the double drain plugs. I use one of the plugs for an oil temp sender.It's also pretty reasonably priced.

Clarks current price for a OTTO pan is between 270 and 300. I cant remember what the difference is. Because there is going to be a significant warp in the pan, the actual cost is going to be 370-400... easily 100 to have a job shop true it up.

If you are going to make the pan, you have to make the matching Moore valve cover.

I also am interested.

What features make the pan better than the OTTO or Clarks Ultimate?

Here is a link to an article I wrote years ago about the Moore oil pan. It has a picture of the internal baffles.

I think AmVair took a few liberties with the performance data. "100 degrees on turbo engines"? I know of no testing on turbo engines and do not believe that a 100 degree drop in oil temp would be possible.
Meticulous testing was done with a 140HP powered Rampside, typically the best was a 30-40F drop compared to the steel pan. One test a 50 degree drop was observed.
