OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

SCAT 1.5 Quart Deep Sump, Porsche 356 and 912 Engines, Internally Reinforced, 50024
SCAT 1.5 Quart Deep Sump, Porsche 356 and 912 Engines, Internally Reinforced, 50024


 
SCAT 1.5 Quart Deep Sump, Porsche 356 and 912 Engines, Internally Reinforced, 50024 is a sorely needed product for sporty early Porsche Owners! 1.5 Quarts of additional oil is available, in a location that won't swing away from your pickup tube! This Deep Sump is made from 356 T-6 Heat Treated Aluminum, and are excellent quality, with very secure mounting! When you bolt this onto the bottom of your vw engine, you increase the oil capacity from 2.5 to 4 quarts, and the chance of sucking all the oil out (before it has a chance to run back down) is minimized!

Contrary to what a lot of guys will tell you, deep sumps do not offer additional cooling, their purpose is for a steady supply of oil for the pump to supply to the bearings. If the pump starts sucking air the bearings do not last long!

This kit includes the sump, allen headed mounting bolts that are VERY secure, hardware and gaskets, and the pick up tube extension. Welding the oil pick up tube extensino is best, but this is only "easy" when the engine is completely apart.

Not many people know this, but the PROPER method of setting your oil level when you are running a deep sump, is to run it 1/2 quart "Low". In other words, on your dipstick the "Add" mark becomes your "Full" mark, and the bottom of the dipstick becomes your "Add" mark. Even doing this you have an additional quart of oil! This lower oil level will lessen oil droplets getting whipped up and blown into your air filter or breather box! Try it!
