Thanks for the pictures Ted.
The baffels are definitley necessary on those pans.
I'm getting some hinged trap doors from Canton to build baffles into the oil pan on the '62 Unibody Performance Shop Truck I'm building now.
Before I added some baffles in my black '57 Sedan's motor it was leaving hard enough (1.75 60 fts') it would pop the oil light on at launch.
I do keep the factory dash Oil Light connected to so I can easlily see if oil pressure drops at any instant.
Jerry Christianson convinced me to start using the autometer senders that light go off under 19 lbs. I also added a higher watt bulb in my '57 oil lamp hole so I can easily see it in case of problems.
I use an oil pressure gauge to bu the bright dash light it the best warning to a drop in pressure since its so noticable and its int he stock location so it looks original.
