Canton Circle Track Oil Pans
The heart of any circle track oil pan is its baffling. The baffling systems in Canton's Competition Oil Pans are the result of extensive testing on all types of tracks with different configurations of engines. Canton's competition left turn baffling has six trap doors and three directional runners. The trap doors and runners make the oil flow to the right rear of the pan during left turns. On acceleration out of the turn and down the straight oil is directed to the right rear by these angled runners. The trap doors close and keep the oil around the pickup during braking. Canton 's Circle Track Competition baffling always directs oil to where our pickup is positioned. The baffling, pickup and sump shape are designed together to provide the best performance in each application.
Canton's Pro Style Pans feature an oil recovery pouch. Because of the rotation of the crank, the oil being thrown off it goes to the right side of the pan. At high RPM this oil wants to bounce off the side of the pan back into the crank. The oil being thrown around in the crankcase creates a heavy atmosphere, which the rotating assembly has to turn in. The resistance of this atmosphere absorbs horsepower from the engine. On Canton's Pro-Style oil pans the right side of the pan is moved out away from the crankshaft creating an oil recovery pouch, where the oil coming off the rotating assembly can collect and drain into the sump. This design thins up the atmosphere in the crankcase and frees up horsepower.
