    Default looking for a xflow dry sump pump motor mount

    hey fellas. i know this is a long shot, but i'm looking for a crossflow right hand side tubular motor mount for a dry sump engine (the normal wet sump mount interferes if you try to install a dry sump pump). after 25 yrs i'm finally doing a dry sump conversion on my racecar (no more oil starve!); I tried to order the dry sump mount from Caterham over a month ago but due to CV19 all the suppliers over there are shut down and Caterham is telling me that they have no idea when/if they can deliver the part. i don't expect to be racing before July here anyway, but I would like to get the mount installed so i can route and build and run all the new oil lines. anyone have a crossflow ford right hand side dry sump motor mount they want to sell me? thanks and stay safe everyone!

    I thought I read somewhere that Ivey Engines is still operating? Or are they shut down too?

    d15b7, I can make you an engine mount, in Laurel MD so not that far away. Do have have any pictures you can post so I can see the design/scale. I guess you have the stock mount and the engine is remaining in the same location, so it should just be a different shape mount but the the locating points in the same place.

    hi Graham! thanks so much for the quick response (and coffee and croc too!). I'm going to post a pic of the existing mount (non dry sump) and a pic from the website of the Caterham dry sump mount. they look very similar except on the dry sump mount the tubes are spread wider to let the scavenge hose pass through to the Piper oil pump. what i'm thinking is maybe you can modify my existing mount to make more clearance (like they made the Caterham drysump mount? i think probably only the lower tube needs to be modified). take a look at the pics and let me know what you think? thanks so much and stay safe out there everyone!

    This is probably what you are after. Right side dry sump mount. I just did a test fit on motor with 5 port Titan pump with 3/4" scavenge pipe and fits fine. It's not so much that you need the tubes spread wider, you need them to be radiused (bent) in order to clear the pump.Email me directly or PM me for additional information.
