Just purchased one from you guys.
Innovative idea! Hard to believe it took 20 years for someone to refine this small, yet very important part of the LS series engine.
Thanks guys!

If your doing the rear main seal, its a good time to toss the loose factory oil diverter/barbell and install one of our Precision fit billet barbells and start keeping unfiltered oil out of the bearings.

I just did this as part of my rear oil leak repairs. When I opened the cover, here's what I saw. You can see the barbell had popped out on it's own - whach was convenient for removing it, but inconvenient for oil pressure:


Here's the new one in. You can see it is nice and flush. Note the threads - that's so you can use a bolt as an extractor. It was a VERY tight fit getting it in there. Not quite a press fit, but tight:


Oil pressure up 10-psi. Nice product, Saccity

Hi Darth,
Thanks for the pictures and input on the Billet Barbell.
Just a note, when you run your engine, the oil pressure will push the Barbell back out about .050" or the thickness of the RM cover gasket. It gets pushed up against the cover. That is normal and that is why the plastic one was sticking out like that.

Thank you,
Christian

Yea mine was a very tight fit as well. Even with the billet barbell and a GMPP HV oil pump my oil pressure is still like 20psi hot idle. The barbell is a nice piece for sure tho, I was worried about tearing the oring putting it in tho.

Just following back up -- I keep rechecking, and oil pressure is definitely higher vs before

Hi mjs,
The main purpose for our Billet Barbel is to eliminate unfiltered oil from
getting into the bearings by forcing the oil through the filter.
I don't think it would make a difference on the oil pressure, although a couple people like Darth, have said there oil pressure improved. Not sure if they did something else to their engine at the time they installed the Barbell?

Thanks
Christian
