Default windage trays

Does anybody know of a windage tray for a 302 windsor front sump that doesn't have to be bolted under the main caps ? Preferably attached between sump and block.

Most aftermarket sumps can come with a windage tray.
I run a Boss 302 (bolt under main caps) and the one that came with the High Energy sump

There are none. The half round main cap seals would have to be incorporated. Imagine trying to keep that arrangement sealed. However on an FE the bottom of the block is flat, hence the windage tray can be sandwiched between two pan gaskets and the pan itself. Still difficult to seal properly.

Did you check out your sump manufacture for windage tray insert?
Otherwise

No reason you can't make one. Use louvered or expanded alum to form the shield. Then have tabs welded to the inside of the pan to bolt the shield to. Keep the shield just above the full oil level and you'll be fine.

Take a look at the inside of a Canton pan, that's all they did.
