Zx9 billet sump

I'm just fitting a billet sump to my zx9 engine in my sprint car.

It has a baffle plate that sandwiches inbetween the sump and engine.

2 questions,

Do I need the baffle plate?

Can I make my own gasket out of gasket paper?

Thanks
Jim

Yes you will need the baffle.

I would think it would be very hard to make a gasket that will seal properly. From what I remember the gasket is pretty intricate.

What he said ^ not saying you couldn't make one with a lot of patience, but they are cheap enough to buy 2 OEM from a dealer.

I bought gaskets and couldn't get them to seal so I installed my baffle with instant gasket mastic either side and it was leak free.





yours, Pete

I went into the RSPCA office the other day. It was so small you could hardly swing a cat in there.

Instant gasket and no OEM or with both?
