Accusump

Post  John Myrick on April 17th 2012, 12:59 pm

Where's the best place to plumb the line into the block ( A460 ) at ? And what size fitting will it require ?
One my last run I noticed the oil pressure dropped at the end of the run, so I guess I better invest in a accusump.

Thanks for the help,
John

The one next to where the mechanical fuel pump block plate is ?
If it is, I just have to figure out where in the hell to mount it in my engine bay

You could put it in the trunk if you want.It doesn't matter where you put it ,just takes a longer hose.

I just looked, I should have room in the cowl area. I did think about the trunk area but didn't want to run the hose that far

Just mount it behind the grill, down low. It ain't THAT heavy.

on that engine you want it in the rear of the block, not the front, because it will fill the oil filter before it gets to the bearings with enought oil

Unless you have a dry sump system you will always have a "dip" in pressure.
John, at your speed .....I'd doubt you have an issue.

Just be sure the filter has an "anti-drain back" flapper valve. If it's working, oil can't flow backwards.

My "dip" was a big fat "0" on my oil pressure gauge.....getting the accusump for piece of mind

NOW YOUR JUST BEING SILLY, THESE ENGINES (SVO) OIL FRONT TO BACK, LAST PLACE TO GET OIL IS THE REAR, IT DOESNT HELP TO PUT IT IN THE FRONT, YOU INSTALL IT IN THE REAR SO IT CAN TRAVEL( OIL THAT IS) TO THE FRONT FROM THE REAR FIRST WHERE WE KNOW THE OIL PRESSER IS LOW BEING OUR GAUGE IS READING IT THERE



THUS BEING THE REAR TO BE THE LAST PLACE TO GET OIL IT NEEDS IT FIRST WHEN THE PRESSER DROPS

I will respectfully disagree.
The production rear only has an 11/32" passageway going to the gallery from a 1/4" NPT tapped hole, (an SVO block even has a smaller passageway), and the front has a 1/2" passageway from the 3/8" NPT tapped hole.
Unless the rear of the block is modified to be larger, anything more than a -6 line is not necessary. That size will not recover lost oil pressure as well, however it will keep some oil there under less gallery pressure for a longer period of time.

You lost pressure after the stripe? and you have a front sump? I didnt think front sumps lost oil pressure at shut down unless all of the oil was up top.
