Default Re: Update on 315 exploding engines.

Thanks for the info Timbo,

Is the baffle attached to the pan or block ? Can it be got at easily? What's involved in fitting new pickup pipe for oil pump? Is it accessible from below as well ?

Hi Col
The baffle plate is attached to the main caps and access can be gained by removing the sump which can be done with the engine still on the car. The pick up pipe comes right off the back of the oil pump in the same area. It's only held in by a male torx bolt with an o ring. As for the difference between the old oil pick up and the new one, I'm not sure. Maybe someone has an early model 315 engine sitting around and may have a picture to compare.
