Haha had to laugh about the pump test. I have been in a few situations like that.

I hope this now starts to make sense.   Rolleyes

Drive will be taken from alternator centre screw, but will require an oil seal on the cover plate - maybe a new plate ?

I was going to get a sump made for the turbo oil return [ quote £55 ]-  then came across this on Chinabay - £25 delivered ! Fits in perfectly under swingarm [ behind engine ] and is 2 litres capacity - ideal.

I might move the oil pump forward to just above the oil filter housing - just depends on the hosing routes.

I was looking at modifying the oil cooler I found in my garage.  The Fittings are £15 - a NEW cooler WITH fittings from Chinabay £18 !

Decided to upgrade to the cooler with swivel 10 AN hose fittings .......... £29.00  !! Hose fittings alone in the UK £37.00

Schematic for oiling system now roughly sketched and just waiting for my approval !  Wink

And here is the rough schematic [ auxiliary system only ].

The Gixer pump is shown here externally mounted, but when I open the motor up, I will be able to see if there's room to mount it inside - similar to ChrisLWG's conversion.

Remember the sketch is schematic layout - the oil cooler will live underneath the engine and provide an additional 1 ltr of oil. Oh yes, and the turbo oil sump is NOT filled with oil, simply acts as a reservoir for the returning turbo oil.

I managed to sell my spare V6 Volvo engine and 3 x gearboxes last weekend. That frees up much needed space in my garage - and some fighting funds for the project.  8)

That means I can now clear a path to my bike stand, and more importantly - the KZ engine that 's been sat on it for 12 months !

Then it's sump and side covers off so I can at last get a good look inside. MY OEM WORKSHOP MANUAL ARRIVES TODAY / TOMORROW -  so no excuses now about what's what and how it functions.  ::)

Nice progress Beach!   Fighting for space is one of my battles as well.   I like the sketch, really helps visualize your plan.

CC,

It will be much simpler / neater IF there is room inside AND I can get direct drive alignment from the OEM pump drive wheel. Hopefully I can get my original engine opened up in the next 2 weeks.

Just so I have all my options to hand after I get the motor opened up, I pulled the trigger on this little [ not so little ! ] gem from Chinabay.

Just under £50 delivered [ FOUR days ! ] it looks very well made and comes from the preferred provinces !

What isn't obvious from the pix is the fact it's very substantial - ie - a big fucka !  :o

Around 4 lbs weight and about the size of a KZ starter motor.

So now I can contemplate several options depending on if there is room inside the crankcases for the Gixer pump. I hope so - as I now have THREE of them [ don't ask ]. ::)

CC,

You know how it goes when you are bidding on several items ????? !!!!!!!

That's how I got 2 of them. The third one ? At £8 including the drive wheel and relief valve - no brainer. Especially as another supplier wanted £20 for those two items on their own.

All 3 are in excellent condition - at least I have plenty of spars now !
