    Does anyone know a source for such a thing?

    I'm considering cutting off the intake portions of an IO 360 sump.

    Thanks.

    TFF,

    Thanks, but I already did that. I want just a pan. I can't tell from photos, but the Titan cold air sump might have the air parts bolted on.

    You could also make one pretty easily. I drew up the pan rail in CAD and had one cut out of 6061 plate with a water jet. Simple matter to add the sides, bottom and oil pickup.

    Trace a gasket on some 1/4 al plate, cut out, box it out, add oil pick up. Fly. Looks good Toobuilder.
