I was just reading that article on my own Grumpy.

The key is finding the 1/4" thick cast iron bottom cover.
Warrior Racing products had them 20 years ago.
I used 2 from them.
I think it was original made by Dyna Gear in Downers Grove, IL.
One of the 455's I brought home last year has the Dyna Gear 60psi M54 D pump with 1/4" inch thick cast cover.
The stock Stamped Steel Pontiac cover is too thin to Ball Mill.

Bultler price on his Pro Blueprint. Pump is not too bad.

Holy Crap Grumpy..
I was just reading down your own type written Info here....
The Classic Chevy 2-quart oil filter is only caple of flowing 11 Gallons per minute.. !
Its a big oil Filter.
I bought 3 K& N Versions of the Chevy 2 quart truck filters.
For the 410 I never finished yet.

The Pontiac M54 D & F pumps both flow 12-13 gallons per minute.
Assume 30 W oil used during testing.

THE PONTIAC OIL FILTER IS THE RESTRICTION TO OIL FLOW.
ALL CHEVIES TOO.

So every Performance engine should have a Dual Filter Remote oil system.
Pontiac V8 455 Especially .

What are Your thoughts of the Old Top Fuel Dragster Remote oil filter Grumpy ?
Has a 1.000 " inch threaded inlet.
