Belly Pan / Engine Diaper

Post  psfracer on May 23rd 2013, 9:52 pm

I have a couple races coming up in October, then the big race (SCSN9) in Las Vegas in November, so....

I have a belly pan already--I am going to have it built again a certain way to make it legal to the letter--those of you with belly pans, what are you lining it with, and how are you attaching that to the pan itself?

I was considering not running a pan, and just run a diaper---but if I do that I would want to go with a motor plate vs the motor mounts I have now. I couldn't find anyone that had a diaper for a BBF with provisions for motor mounts--they were all for a BBF running a motor plate. Anyway I ran one two years ago and it lasted 1 weekend, didn't really fit right, and the straps burned on the headers anyway.

Any suggestions?

I built my own pan from light weight aluminum. Attaches with 6 dzus clips.

i buy the J&J replacement pads from jegs or summit #JJPD12

Works good no leaks

Ok great--I will look up the pads on Jegs.

How do you attach the pads to the pan?

I just stuff them in all around the oil pan and oil lines wherever they fit.

Dont leave them loose. They melt and stink when the get sucked out and land on the headers.... Suspect

Ok, I was thinking to line the pan with velcro strips and attach that way. Definitely not loose.
