    Jeff. I assume you already have access to a 4.0 manual flywheel with timing tags on the rear. Not many of them going spare.

    If the flywheel has the ring of tags on it's rear then yes it will trigger the ECU. You said earlier that yours was a 4.6, so is the flywheel from a 4.0?

    Regarding the oil cooler plumbing, in many RV8 instalations the oil filter is a problem poking so far fwd like it does amnd you usualy need to fit a remote filter, this is the way I found easiest to plumb the cooler in
    Hi Bluegenepop,
    Yes indeed it's the front cover that descides the sump type. I have two RV8's and like you one has a remote filter /cooler take off . On the other the filter space is not a problem so I will be using the OE oil cooler take off points on the serp type cover which gives a neat arrangement.

    Jeff, It will therefore NOT have a dizzy and will have/need the later sump with long pickup. Unless of course you fit a front cover with a dizzy and run carbs or an appropriate ECU.

    Ian, The cooler outfeed (ie return pipe) runs into the filter and through the filter to the engine gallery. The relief valve returns oil to the pump inlet and is separate to the oil cooler circuit.
    Cheers Den
