Oil Tank

Has anyone built a new oil tank or sump????
I'm having thoughts of building one with more capacity and moving it behind the drivers seat.

Re: Oil Tank

The only one I have heard anything about was on a RZR Wastland conversion with the Weber FST and I think the guy made it too small and ruined the engine because of it.

Re: Oil Tank

Thanks Dave. I think I will give it a try. Five to six quart capacity and a better return and vent system. I will post pictures as we progress. Hopefully it will be an improvement.

Re: Oil Tank

Sight glass would be nice. I used to have one on my race car and it sure made it easy to check the oil. It would also be nice to have AN fittings welded on also.

Re: Oil Tank

A lot of issues, we are experiencing, with the generic weber tank can be addressed with a new design.
1. More oil capacity for longer dwell time in the tank.
2. Efficient and effective oil/air separation.
3. Address CC venting from/through scavenge pump.
4. User friendly options:
a)Oil level sight glass.
b)Drain plug
c)Large filler neck
d)-AN fittings
Any other thoughts, additions????????

Re: Oil Tank

What capacity are you thinking? I put 3 qts in my Revolt, 1 more quart would add 25%.
Some cooling fins sure would help with the heat.
How about some baffles to keep the oil from sloshing inside.

Re: Oil Tank

Bear Foot,
4-5 qt. capacity.
It will be baffled near the bottom. 2-3 baffles in the upper third to separate the air and oil. Going to use .080-.100 aluminum, it should dissipate heat well. We have already doubled the size of the oil cooler and added a fan.
