Yes, the AU's do have longer main cap bolt holes.

But they also used both types of girdle in the photo that I took. I always thought that the earlier type girdle was the 2 piece used with caps with longer bolt holes.

The one piece girdle I have actually has a BA part number, and I was told it was for late AU and BA's.

But yes I agree that it would be only for smoothness, rather than strength. Even though an AU engine without the sump and girdle is almost BA smooth as it is.

How thick is the BA girdle+windage tray?? are the AU Bolts long enough for both the BA one and the one-piece AU girdle??
Is the BA Windage tray still close enough to the crank with the AU one piece under it??

Thanks
David

Can a AU or BA windage tray be fitted to E series without the girdle, i am only looking for oil control not strength.

High Energy do a SuperPan for the I6, that comes with a windage tray and crank scraper built in. Probably easier/neater than modding a OEM part, and you dont have to piss around with the main cap bolts. Just FYI. :D

High Energy's quality has seemed to deteriorate in the last 2 years. My old man used their product a couple of years ago and it was and still is fantastic, but in the last year have heard a heap of reports of bad/faulty welds.

Thanks guy's, i dont know how much the High Energy sump would cost but I am guessing a lot. I dont mind and are capable of modifying a OEM part to suit, any one got a picture of the windage tray by itself not fitted with the girdle.

As above its not a Gridle its a windage tray - metal is too thin to act as girdle - I have a Custom Made Girdle on my Hemi 6cyl and it would be useless if it was that thin

Here is a pic with it in production - no stud holes cut yet

Thanks DRHEMI, That clears a few things up, I did actually think the one in the pictures was a girdle with a windage tray underneath, now I can at least start my search at the wreckers and not look like a complete idiot.
