TracTuff Oil Pump Baffle
On Back Order as of 12/20/2020 - Caught off guard with a surge in sales... did not have in the production que and will be a few weeks before they are back on the shelf. If this note is up, its still on back order so no need to send emails asking what the status is.
Our very first product was a timing chain cover baffle that got sandwiched between the oil pan and block; it limited the amount of oil that would be allowed to slosh up the timing chain cover under hard left-hand turns. This is the evolution of that product.
We've always been restricted by the shape of the pump so it makes sense that oil pan baffles have been designed around it. So I did just that! I designed something that bolts to the pump and follows the contours of the pan, keeping oil closer to the pick-up by not allowing it to travel up the timing chain side as well as allowing oil to return to the pan easily via the trap-doors once out of the turn.
NOTE: The doors on the oil pump baffle are now welded to the baffle and have two bent corners (per door) to keep the doors from sticking to the main plate once wet. Product photos do not reflect this as we have not had an opportunity to re-shoot the changes. Applications listed as "modified" will require additional time to be modified and then shipped. Applications listed as "hand made" will be placed on the calendar with all other fabricated work; if you require an ETA... please inquire before ordering. You will not get a complete refund if you change your mind.
2. Thread the tap in from the front side. If you are doing this with the pump installed or in the chassis where space is limited... use a wrench or a ratchet w/ a socket.
3. Now you are ready for installation!
