oil cooler pump?
So, I've recently had an idea cross my mind. Thought I'd post up on here and gather some advice/ideas before pursuing anything. So, the Battle-Wagon (twice-totalled '92 740 N/A) has an electric fuel pump, always has, no mods. However, there's a block-off plate on the block that I only assume is for a mechanical fuel pump. My thought was this; If one were to install a mech. pump and tap into the oil pan, run a line from that to the fuel pump, then to a cooler, and dump it into the top through some sort of oil sprayer in the valve cover... Would this aid in oil/engine cooling and suplimentary oil to the head at start-up, or... would it just increase the chances of the oil pump running dry and burn up the mechanical fuel pump because oil is not fuel. lol. if anyone has tried this and/or has any info I'd really appreciate some input. in theory it seems like a win-win...?
