Default Re: Oil pan baffels ?

Yes you need the baffle. My first hand experience has proven that without it being in place you may lose pressure going around corners and hills.
I had repaired a 34 coupe a couple of years ago with just those issues. It had been to three shops prior to mine.
I checked everything 'easy" and after finding no issues, removed the pan.
Someone had removed it to install a "modern" oil pump.
I had welded in as much baffle as possible to each side of the new pump sump.
Problem fixed.
