How does a rotary work? This one's easy: the magic triangle spins in the peanut and then apex seals come out.
well, tackled the oil pan today. welder ran out of gas juuuust at the very end. I'm fairly happy with it. I repaired the seam from the inside once the rest of the pan was reinforced. likely this ads about 1/4 inch to the bottom of the pan. I am going to raise the car up 1/2 an inch and see where it sits.

It honestly wasnt too bad to pull off. a lot easier than say an ABA oil pan. I'll probably be starting from scratch with something new and reinforcing that. working with this one after the fact wasn't a cake walk since its not straight anymore on the bottom. Was disappointed to find you cant even jack on this oil pan.... The extra capacity is nice, but a factory 8v pan has lasted me most of a summer in the past, and doesnt collapse if you jack on it. anyways, this should work fine in the interim.
edit: also noticed the pan impacted the pickup tube. I'm going to have to look at that tomorrow.
