    The input current figures look odd - 13A for a 160A machine and 28A for a 200A machine. My 200A TIG runs on a 15A socket. It depends what you are up to but the messing about with car and truck parts...

    To my best recollection, for a Chevy powered Ram, the front springs are 350 lb (x2) and the rears are 150 lb (x4). The lengths I don't have but should suit the shocks you get.

    A puller for the balancer is quite a compact thing (you should not use a standard three-legged puller). It is dropping the sump that is more of a PITA.

    Save yourself money and disappointment and fix it properly. It's not such a big job and the result will be worth it.

    Are you sure it is slosh that you are seeing? Does the gauge stabilise correctly when you are just cruising along? The gauges I have seen (Smiths type) are heavily damped and unlikely to show...

    Yes, it is possible but getting close to the limit, depends on the block, core shift and all that.

    Doesn't sound like a slosh problem. At a steady speed cruising along there is no acceleration and very little slop.

    This explains it a bit more, there is a port on the side of the pump for priming.

    Turns out the oil pump is driven directly from the crank on the LS engine so there is no way of priming the system other than to turn it over on the starter. This set-up might also explain why it...

    All good thanks. I remade the gearbox mount, adjusting the height somewhat and the angles are closer now. I've never noticed any vibration or problems with the shaft so I guess it does not matter as...

    A cast sump would probably have enough thickness to drill and tap for the sender. Then you can place it out of harms way if the drain-plug adapter leaves it rather exposed.

    Incidentally (pedantic)...

    The sender does need to match the gauge. I would be placing it on the return from the remote filter / cooler. You are interested in how hot the oil is as it enters the block more than when it leaves.

    I don't think a supression cap has anything to do with arcing to nearby metalwork. The small right-angle silicon caps will survive for quite a while in extreme heat but will crack in the end. I'll...

    It is, for a master like that. The single line runs to the rear and you save having to fit a tee-piece in the front but many, including the Marina/Ital, have only two ports in total.

    Fitting the bias valve to the front circuit is the right to do IF the fronts are locking up too easily. The OP had the opposite symptom (rears locking too soon) I think. Rears locking up first...
