I am back to defend my self every thing said on this Wet sump article about me isn't true. Everybody can go on E Bay and see my feedback %100 and read what people say about me. I have sold a very lot of oil pumps all over the world with NO come backs or complaints. My fix works and has ben proven for 6 years now. why run me down for what I do ? That is what happened here. If I get banned for saying this that's OK I tell the truth and don't need to be here . Your call.

Problem is you're here to promote your product for profit. Whether or not it works is irrelevant. You're not a forum sponsor and this isn't allowed.
If you have a solution and wish to share it, feel free.

Geez fella, this is NOT Facebook or Craigslist or Fleabay and we have NO customer service dept. here.

One more thing.
....................
That's not what this forum is here for.

redacted.
That wasn't nice.
I just get frustrated sometimes.


Seems to me people who provide a service would NOT want to piss off potential customers.
Word of mouth weeded out the problems back in the day.
It worked fine. Apparently things have changed.

Maybe we're just spoiled with all the PROFESSIONAL vendors we have on this forum.

Not to mention all of the highly talented members.

OK, Im over it.... I think.

But anyway, so far so good. Wet sumping appears to have stopped.

Noting that with my race engine I'm running a dry belt. Which means the oil transfer valve is sealed.Which means I'm not aware of the leak until it starts leaking out of the main bearing seal on the sprocket shaft. Which means my engine is just about exactly half full of 50 weight.

I know, I know. It probably shouldn't leak past that seal. But it does.
