Auxiliary Electric Oil Pump

A fantastic little electric scavenge pump that can be optionally used in parallel with the normal mechanical one - it clears any residual oil from mini sump.

During testing, it was found that leaving this pump running for a few minutes after shut down that it cleared almost all the oil from the engine and returned it back to the oil tank.

Furthermore, it was found that with the pump on that on turning the engine over by hand, the action of bottoming the piston caused the oil to be pushed out of the lower cylinders down into the front and rear drains thus allowing the pump to whisk that oil away.

The net result being less mess on the floor and seemly far less hydraulic lock oil to contend with; though it must be stressed that this pump does not eliminate HL.

Aluminium Oil Tank (includes fittings) - Custom made to fit your craft

The tank on the left was designed and manufactured by Rotec to fit on a Fisher Celebrity (Rotec R2800).

Often when purchasing and engine mounting frame from Rotec an oil tank is often added to the order. The reason being the design work for the oil tank is simplified through the design work done on the frame.

Some customers elect to use Rotec's design facilities to supply only drawings for the frame and oil tank and elect to build these parts themselves.

There are examples of other oil tanks to be found in many of the client project pages.

Another example can be found on Michel Cavin's Sopwith Camel project page being a tank for a Rotec R3600

No switches or pots to fiddle with while the engine is running with prop turning at 2000rpm!

Engine hours are displayed in the LCD window. Non-volatile memory chip stores hours even without power. Comprehensive instructions included on how to calibrate 3.5 ignition spark and how to wire the clock.
