Can anyone tell me how the external wet sump pump works and how is it plumbed into the engines oiling system. Also what applications would this be recommended for, reffering to over what RPM range should it be used.

We run that setup & have the pump mounted on the back with the KSE pump. You use the pan as the tank. Ours feeds the block thru the front. Dart & bowtie blocks come with the front oiler older stock blocks have a 1/4 plug there that can be drilled & tapped or you can use the plug above the oil filter on stock block's too. This setup work's great! Have ran the same motor for 3 years every year bearing's look like new. Turning motor 7500-8000. We do have the pan custom made but some guy's just put a fitting in the side of a regular circle track pan.

What type of pump is it? I,m assuming that it is a single stage pump.

Yes it's a stock car products single stage pump. You have to run a adapter to mount the KSE pump to the back of it. I know peterson fluid also makes a single stage too.

I have a Barnes single stage pump with the KSE pump mounted on it for sale. It works awsome, only ran that engine for 3 nights so the pumps are like new. Killer setup. Let me know if you are interested. I can send pics if you like. It was plumbed like this... oiline from pan to pump in- line from pump out to oil filter in- line from oil filter out to engine oil in. The oil filter block has a port for oil temp. It uses -12AN lines and fittings.
