Bummer! Have you considered weld repair by Divco down in Tulsa? They can do a pretty quick turnaround with an expidite fee.

Thanks Paul. I plan to call Divco and Crankcase Services tomorrow morning. I was trying to minimize my downtime, but it appears my sump has a couple extra bungs welded on.

If they can repair, it will be the cheapest route. Also trying to justify sky dynamics cold air induction, but would then have to buy their 6 into 1 exhaust and try to integrate with the existing cowl.
