Big wing sump capacity

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

so I’ve fitted a big wing sump from premier motorsports onto a 205 pinto engine for my mk2 escort ,the dipstick fits fine and doesn’t bottom out in the sump.

my question is when filling with oil should the sump hold the same capacity as for the 2.0 pinto or a little less,do I just fill to the mark on the dipstick.

im presuming the majority of oil will be in the wings as such and shouldn’t be a problem for the crank.

any advice is most grateful thanks

Surely the whole point of a 'big wing sump' is increased capacity? The dip stick is measuring correct oil level not capacity so i'd fill it to satisfy the marks on the dip stick. Hopefully the 'bigger' sump is adequately baffled otherwise that increased oil will no doubt cause issues!

I filled mine to the lines on the dipstick.i also fitted oil pressure gauge with electronic sender.

I think they state on their website to use the standard levels on the dipstick.
