Milodon stroker windage tray, part number 32005, It says it is good for up to 0.500" extra stroke, i.e. 4.25" cranks.Pics of modified MP BB windage tray
What do you think?
I can't imagine why not-the main problem with the stock one, insufficient drainback, appears to have been cured with yours.
looks good...should be an improvement over the stock tray.
Looks good to me. I have a modified one on my 440. I just bought the Milidon one for the 451 instead of reworking another MP tray.
Todd, actually I started with a long rectangular piece of metal, bent the ends into the trianular tab peices and then just traced it onto the tray, cut the whole rectangle shape out of the tray and then welded them together. Again, no big deal. Had it done before lunch. The hardest part is cutting out the holes in the tray. The die grinder with the cutoff wheel comes in handy there.
I forgot who's tray this is???
The only one I've seen is from Dvorak Machine. It's not cheap, and it's not a "bolt on", either.
John, either throw the MP one in the garbage and buy a Milodon tray or have the MP opened up more and have some more louvers stamped in it.
the mp one is comming off , i know it bites , i planned on getting the milodon unit and maybe buying smallblock chevy screen or 2 and turning my try into a screen .
JohnRR - with a little ingenuity you should be able to cut out the middle of the MP tray and attach an aftermarket screen material to it...why buy the Milodon tray if you're only going to cut it up anyway?
Milodon sells the screen material seperately. You could hack out the middle of the MP "oil retainer tray", and weld in the screen.
i called dan , not to helpful after it was decided i didn't want to spend some money .
thanks for the heads up on buying the screen , anyone got a picture of one they did ?
"You could hack out the middle of the MP "oil retainer tray", and weld in the screen."
As Jerico said , and I use it also , the Milodon 32000 windge tray has plenty of louver area to be affective.
what i was told that is a bad about flat trays is that the oil can splash back up because it basicly slamming into a wall , there is less problem with a screen that allows it to fall thru instead of having to redirect to drain ??????
Cut the center out and weld astrip of screen in,make SURE you point the screen in the right direction,it is directional.
Any how-to's or anything out there on making a tray/screen? I dont know anyone who makes a tray for my motor
"make SURE you point the screen in the right direction,it is directional. "
