K Series Dry Sump Oil Pump Kit
The dry sump lubrication system is the ultimate oiling system for internal combustion engines. The main purpose of the dry sump system is to contain all the stored oil in a reservoir/ tank allowing for an uninterrupted supply of oil to the engine... even under extreme cornering/ acceleration/ deceleration forces.
Our dry sump oil pumps have a minimum of 2 stages but can have as many as 5. The first of these stages is for "pressure" and draws oil from the bottom of the reservoir/ tank then pressurizes it and then sends it to a remote filter and then the engine. The remaining stages "scavenge" the oil out of the shallow dry sump pan, sending both oil and air to the top of the reservoir/ tank where it is allowed to de-aerate or condense.
The dry sump pump is usually driven by a Gilmer or HTD style belt which is driven by the crankshaft or accessory at approximately 1/2 speed. Consistent oil pressure provided by the dry sump system is the reason dry sumps are employed but other benefits include shallower oil pan, better ground clearance, lower center of gravity, increases horsepower due to less viscous drag and reduced crankcase pressure, as well as cooler oil.
