Quote from: Mikey'JMind you that could suddenly drop pressure to the mains/rods under load
Quote from: Mikey'J... maybe it needs to be an active 'leak' all the time and keep it simple instead that's the way to do it!
Quote from: JFB TechBest way would be to have the cooling sprays operate on a pressure switch, if the oil pressure drops below a certain pressure the sprays shut off saving the engine from oil starvation.
Quote from: Cortiworth IVThe oilpressure bypass valve will compensate for drop in oilpressure immediatly.
Quote from: JanspeedcapriQuote from: Cortiworth IVThe oilpressure bypass valve will compensate for drop in oilpressure immediatly.The bypass valve on the pump is to relieve EXCESS oil pressure - it won't prevent a drop. Run the sprays off an accumilator so you have 2 sources of oil pressure - the pump for the normal duties and the accumilator for fancypants sprays.
Quote from: Cortiworth IVHopefully it may be enough to save the engine. It's not possible to separate the accumulator from the main lubricating system as the accumulator is charged from the oilpump. Or do you suggest to run a separate oilpump for the accumulator and oilsprays? Also, the oil level in the sump will vary quite a lot depending on which state of charge the accumulator is in. In my opinion the accumulator is a band aid, not a cure.
