What Is A Crank Scraper?


What Is An Oil Recovery Pouch?
The oil pan's recovery pouch extends the right side of the pan out away from the crankshaft, creating an open pocket for oil coming off the rotating assembly to collect and drain into the sump. This thins out the heavy atmosphere of oil in the crankcase allowing the crank to spin easier thus freeing up horsepower.

What Is Baffling?
The baffling systems in Canton's oil pans are the result of extensive testing on all types of tracks and engine configurations. We use a combination of precisely positioned trap door baffles, oil runners, and slosh baffles to control the oil in the sump and direct it to the pickup. Trap door baffles are designed and positioned to open and allow oil to easily flow towards the pickup and close to prevent oil from flowing away from the pickup. When motion causes oil movement the oil runners direct oil toward the trap door baffles.

What Is A Crank Scraper?
The crank scraper extends out away from the pan mounting rail toward the crankshaft. The crank scraper is designed to catch oil spray coming off the crankshaft. Like the oil recovery pouch the crank scraper thins out the atmosphere of oil around the crankshaft and frees up horsepower.
