Sorry Farnk no 4cyl tractor sumps spare.Aussie Frank wrote:Hi Mike,1962 model wrote:Hello again,
my sump at the beginning of this topic, is from a Class combine, just as a reminder.
It is also worth remembering that any casting based on an original 4cyl design requires allowance for a different location oil pick up location and needs to be based on the Super Major sump, not the earlier ones as the A frame pin increased in size in the last models so enough material needs to be there to do both pin sizes.
Also please note that the 6 cyl oil pump is physically larger so requires a deeper pocket in the sump and more pipe clearance than the 4cyl one, I doubt that a 4cyl front section would have enough clearance.
Thanks for the info on the super Vs normal pin size. That is very helpfull. As for the oil pump clearence I figured that since csvper was able to weld 3 Fordson 4 cylinder sumps together to make a 6 cylinder one it should clear. but still worth checking.
Something you may be able to help with though, do you know if the fordson 4 cylinder oil pickup fits onto the 6 cylinder? If it did it would make the whole design a little easier as we would only have to allow for one type rather than a multitude of different ones.
Do you have a 4 cylinder sump lying around for me to have a look at too? If you don't mind me popping around to check out the parts you do have PM your contact details to me so that we can arrange a visit.
As to the oil pump, later 4 cyl engines have the same pump as 6s. Early sumps do differ in the oil pump area. You need a Power Major or later sump.
