Windage tray

Post  69F100 on March 17th 2013, 3:38 pm

I have been looking for the last few days for a windage tray for my 552 I found one that don't have to be cut to fit a 4.5 crank and comes with the studs/bolts/nuts to mount it but I have to replace 4 of my main bolts.I have read the replys on the 2 bolt main block tread some say it dont hurt to change the bolts some say it needs line honing.Well my engine has been line honed with factory bolts what do you guys think about replacing the bolts for a windage tray.Or would I be better off buying a pan with a windage tray already in it.

I know most guys are freaks about this, but I can say from experience that on three occasions Ive had blocks checked w/bolts then w/studs. All three times they were perfect. I think its because of the size of the main cap itself. Beefy. Just my .02.

i'd like the tray in the pan but would'nt worry about the studs.my 526 never had the mains honed and has studs.
