Default Superior sump idea

I have the superior sump as shown in the photo.

@Ross - would you guys be able to pre-buy some of the tubes, and then offer a kit which is already welded? Then we could send you back our tubes to be re-welded for the next guy. Like returning an empty coke bottle.



I'm sure that there is a market for that - charge a lot.

Unfortunately my ace welder friend retired last year so I don't have an economical alternative who can do top quality work.

Ideally, if Superior would be agreeable, they could install our flanges during the manufacturing process if they'd agree to respect my IP.

We just received another run of flanges from the machine shop and anodizer on Friday so have a decent stock of clear, gold and red flanges in stock again for those interested. As always, thanks for your patience.

Our machining partner who makes these is working 7 days a week to try to keep up with demand for his services from SDS and other clients. He'll be adding a new Haas VF-4 in the coming months and expanding his shop space to the adjacent bay to accommodate it. This should reduce lead times on many of our parts- but I've said that before...

Aloha

I'm a bit confused with the welding discussion. I have been led to believe that it is really hard to weld anodized aluminum without having to remove the anodizing layer and thus making a mess.

Are these flanges welded on?

A high quality product that does the job. I put a set on my not flying yet IO-320 RV-9A. My build buddy put a set on his IO-360 Cozy MKIV. He states there was a noticeable improvement in how his engine ran afterwards. Thanks for making this kit available, and at a very reasonable price IMHO.

The welding only comes into play if the flange blocks cant slide on/off the tube as typically seen on the angle valve engines and some aftermarket examples. In these cases, the tube needs to be cut to remove the old flange blocks and install the SDS parts, then the tube is welded back together.

I installed mine today on a Lycoming O-360 A2A.

Very impressed with the idea, and part quality.

It was a very straightforward and easy installation.

I used Knipex Cobra 250mm Spring Hose Clamp Pliers 85 51 250 A. These are superb.

Can’t wait to run the engine.

Cheers
