    Actually, thinking about it, I have a SBC 7 1/2" sump sitting in the garage with a sump guard already fitted! Anyone want to make me a offer??

    That looks like it might work.
    I'm off to take some measurements to make sure it fits.
    It probably double in price with postage and duty but still a hefty saving from buying over here..

    Cheers

    Spacers are the cheaper way forward but the sump will be too near the ground. When I bought my LS3 engine from Roadcraft I had the small sump fitted. Have you checked with Brian at Roadcraft the cost of a sump. As he supplies various engines you may be lucky that he may have one in stock

    Thanks for the offer of the sump but if it's standard I don't think it would work with a stroker.
    Anyway I've gone for the double kick out style as suggested by Tinka.
    With a bit of luck I should then be able to use my nice new sump guard without any mods..

    No problem, shame though as it's exactly the same as the one tinka linked to which is what reminded me I have one spare. And yes, it's profiled for a stroker crank.

    Looking at the sump you propose to fit, I doubt if the guard will fit. This due to the angle of the legs from the guard to the chassis. I think they will hit the oil pan on the outside edges. The guard would need to have new legs fitted where they do not kink up until they have missed the width of the oil pan. Guard can still be altered.

    This had occurred to me. After I'd ordered the sump I might add....
    I had a look last night and it would probably only be the middle leg that would need altering.
    I will cross that bridge when the new sump arrives.....
