Colin,
Could I suggest that you make the new sump much wider and with as large a capacity as possible. The oil will get much hotter than it would in a truck as the engine will be working much harder and there is almost no air flow around it. If there is a section of sump with no access to the oil pump it doesn't matter as the oil trapped in it will still slowly mix with the oil 'in use' and will still radiate heat. A few fins welded on the outside would help too.

A great thing with the Chevy engine is that the distributor, plugs, starter and fuel pump are on the side you can get to and the carb should be accessable fairly easily.

A great job as always.

David
