F-O-A Oil Accumulator
 
F-O-A Oil Accumulator

This is an oil accumulator...sometimes refered to as a "Poor man's dry sump". Designed to provide instant oil pressure to your motor. No more dry starts. There is an internal piston so that you can mount the cylinder in any direction you want. The internal piston separates the oil from the air pressure so you can mount it upside down if needed. Once you install it, your motor will never be without oil pressure on startup again. As soon as you turn on the key you will see pressure. Just wire the 12 Volt solenoid to your ignition and then to ground and pipe the 3/8" NPT to your oil system and your done. It comes with Buna-N "O" rings that are good to 230 F. With a 600mm 3/8" line to my accumulator and it never seems to get very hot. So, Buna-N O rings are going to be fine for about 95% of all applications. The standard size is 12" long and it holds about 740ml of oil, depending on the pressure you are running. You can adjust the amount of oil to about a liter by reducing the pressure on the accumulator with the Schrader valve. The cylinder is 2.5" OD and is extruded Aluminum and is clear anodized. The Solenoid is from Parker and the valve body is 6061 T6. The piston and the end cap are A 380 Diecast Aluminum. When your ignition is turned off the solenoid closes capturing the oil pressure that your engine had before you shut it down. Then when you turn the key on you have that oil pressure to feed your engine before turning it over to start.
