Richie Ginther 914/4 sump

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model (914/4, 914/6): 914/4; Year: 1974; Engine (type, size, modifications): big bore kit; Total Mileage: 0 being restored as we speak;

Richie Ginther prepared the 914/4 with a sump that was a little deeper allowing the use of two NPT hose fittings. Each were connected to the valve covers. Does anyone carry that sump cover? I would like to run that on my motor.Better yet one company has made a high volume oil pump that uses tandem gears on two shafts. (Think of a double stacked stock placement high volume oil pump). The outermost housing, under the cover plate, has input and output fittings. This is actually a dry sump pump, requiring tank, breather tank, etc...Total housing thickness is only twice that of a stock pump. Allowing crank pully clearance. Does anyone manufacture a dry sump pump that isn't 6 to 8 inches in total length, for the 914/4, and of course, that is not in the 600 dollar range?Lastly, and again, a Richie Ginther mod was the use of a front swaybar mounting without going through the inner fender bulkhead. It used both the aft facing support members of the steering rack mount and original u-brackets of the A-arms for mounting the bar. Who has this method of mounting the swaybar?(Ref: Panorama; Vol IV; pg 226 ~ swaybarpg 228 ~ sump).
