The Summer Crop from Canton
Canton, Ohio: Seat of Stark County, straddling the West and Middle Branches of the Nimishillen Creek, home to 78,362 souls as of the 2008 Census estimate, and site of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Canton Racing Products: Connecticut-based manufacturer of a wide range of high-performance parts for more than two decades, best known for their made-in-the-USA oil pans, valve covers, and dry sump tanks.
While Canton, Ohio offers a summer filled mostly with hot, muggy weather punctuated by the occasional thunderstorm, Canton Racing Products has something a little more exciting going on, with a big list of new products just released.
For the Blue Oval crowd, the new Ford 4.6 Stock Eliminator Rear Sump Pan (which incidentally also works with the 5.4 block) offers stock pan dimensions, capacity, and looks, while incorporating a windage/anti-slosh baffle, making it a perfect choice for competition drag and road racing.
Installing a new Small-Block Chevy crate motor this summer? Canton’s got a replacement for the stud-mounted windage tray yours came with that offers improved oil control for a bargain price. Fabricated from .100 aluminum for strength and longevity, the tray is hard-coated for improved oil shedding and fits stock pans, along with most aftermarket tin.
Canton has an astonishing selection of fabricated coolant recovery tanks, both for custom installations and as direct stock replacements. One of the latest additions to the list is this tank for turbo Buick applications. Grand National owners can replace their ugly, cracked stock tanks with this fabricated .100 aluminum beauty, which is designed to fit exactly like the stock piece (only much tricker).
No matter what you drive, you’ll appreciate clean oil, and Canton has expanded their line of CM Performance oil filters to include new billet spin-on housings for popular applications. Available in five different thread/o-ring combinations, these filters accept CM’s 2 1/4″ high synthetic fiber element which flows 12 gallons per minute of hot engine oil, and help cool it down with machined-in heat sink ribs.
