What I was referring to was the fact that he was saying he had no provision on the new block to run is original windage tray, as the the replacement engine has its windage tray in the oil pan and he has to run his stock pan. The solution I was offering was to have his machine shop modify his stock pan to accept the windage tray from the pan that came with the replacement engine. I gave him a little more depth of the differences because he seemed to be confused on the difference, or the interchangeably of the two. From what he was saying, if he just ran his stock pan he would have no windage tray, just the baffles in his stock oil pan, which would not be enough, most likely.
