We would wonder how that compares to the Clark's or Offenhauser, etc. pans of similar design.

Thanks to Richard's pic I now know I have Moore valve covers. So must have a pan if produced. One please.

30-40 degree drop is huge.

Yes, those were some of the best results from 65/70 mph So Cal Summer "Standard Day" tests. One run we put a thermocouple in the drain plug and saw a 50 degree difference...our conclusion for that outlier was that's probably the case for drain plugs on any Corvair pan.
In all cases the oil temp was lower with the cast pan, not always 30-40 degrees.

I've purchased the Nash fan, and now a Moore oil pan. Just need the set of valve covers now.

Count me in for a set of valve covers. $300 to $500 for the set.

Thanks!

To give people a sense of what a good deal the Moore pan is over an OTTO pan is,
for the OTTO pan to achieve approximately the same results with oil cooling, the oil pick up has to be as far away from the bottom of the pan as with the Moore pan. This doesnt happen unless you mod the stock oil pickup or buy the Otto "long" pickup.
The other way is to put a humongous oil cooler on.

I was wondering about that 100 degree turbo thing???? Anyone have any idea how many of these were ever produced/sold?? I have been working on and owning Vairs since the 60s, first time I ever have seen one.

If you're questioning the "100 degree turbo thing", I commented about that a few posts back;
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.

AmVair was a reseller.

50 pans were produced

Hey Jerry, I would also want a set of the Moore valve covers AND I am willing to pay in advance. Remember, I have been to your house. If you don't come thru I will show up and confiscate your 59 Corvette!

How much oil capacity increase does the Moore pan provide? Any idea how a Cragar pan compares to Moore or O.P. or Clarks for dropping oil temps? Was it just the best that was available when Yenkos were built?

I’ve got Offy pans on both my Race Motors, I think they suck as far as cooling goes. I have a monster cooler and still see 280 to 300 degrees oil temps. Mobil one racing oil seems to keep everything Together but a wouldn’t mind trying a Moore style pan

Now I have to get it, just to keep up with the cool kids.

One, please.

My ceiling is $300, however. If the run is more expensive than that, nevermind.

Oil capacity is exactly 1 quart more than the stock steel pan

Jerry, thank you for the research into reproducing "The Pan"

30, 40, maybe even 50 degree cooling is too good to pass up.
Plus, better clearance with this pan over other cast aluminum pans.

I'm in for one.
