We just finished up development on a line of scrapers for the factory crank (3.622") and aftermarket H-beam and I-beam rods. They are going into production and should be available within a couple of months.

This version may or may not fit your crank. We haven't checked that one yet. When it's available, we'd be happy to send you one at a discount to test fit at no risk. If it doesn't fit, just send it back.

The windage tray nuts are lock nuts, so no locktite is needed!

That is what I thought but wanted to verify, thank you for the quick replies.

Sounds good, hopefully it's not too long before they are available as the motor isn't in yet.

Hey guys, crank scrapers for the factory stroke, aftermarket rods are now in stock! Currently they are only available for those with ARP main studs, but they will be available for stock studs soon as well.

We also have updated scrapers for the GTO (we had some fitment issues with the windage tray previously) and 5 Gen Camaro (no longer requires trimming).

We will be adding the new parts to the website soon, but I wanted to post up and let everyone know ASAP. If you need to order now, you can call or email us and we'll get you taken care of.

Hey! I realize I amresurrecting this thread back from the dead. Sorry about that.
In any case, my engine is a 3.622 stroke and uses Scat I beams as well as ARP head studs. It also has a GM "muscle car" pan. I'm kinda thinking the part number that correlates to my setup is EGM-732A but I would like to be certain before purchasing anything (especially at $280). Any help is greatly appreciated.

Yes sir, EGM-732A is the right part for your setup!

In this case it doesn't matter that it's an LS7 block. All that matters is the crankshaft, rods, oil pan, and stud size.

If your rods are Callies Compstar H-beam rods, then part number EGM-732AF.

If they're are any other typical H-beam rod, you need part number EGM-731AF.

We don't have anything for that size yet. We have to manufacture and stock something like 18 different scrapers for each stroke size, and at the moment there just isn't quite enough demand for 4.125" to justify the inventory cost, unfortunately.

Our LS7 scraper is designed specifically to work with the dry sump oil pan and pickup, so it won't work with wet sump pans without modification.

What oil pan are you using? I can see what the closest match would be and how much modification would be required.
