OK...…..this is a really strange one.

Building a 13B powered miata for Chump...….. Got to shorten the oil pan for chassis fit...…..so planning to use a 3qt accusump with check valve …..maybe 2 of them in parallel for 6 qts pressurized oil total......not sure how good of a job can be done on baffling with so little volume. So here is the real question.

IF someone accidentally left the accusump valve open during engine shut off (who hasn't done that?) and the 13B crankcase took the 6 qts of oil........could any damage occur upon restart?????. I'm thinking some kind of hydraulic lock due to oil leaking by a rotor seals but don't confine your imagination.

I'm no rotary guru so please enlighten me. Ears open! Jay
