Still wondering with say a 7qt wet sump pan where I could plum it into the block??.

Also where I can get a adjustable oil pressure switch to wire it with a electric valve??.Maybe also use the adjustable switch to work as a low or no oil pressure shut down??.Kind of say the engine experiences a no oil pressure event,but the accusump adds oil to save parts/bearings.

Some time ago I considered one of the Accusump or equivalent of the other brand. However I found it much easier, useful, and convenient to just use an electric pump (tilton differential oil pump) plumbed with a weld-in AN fitting for input and a line to oil filter housing for output.

Much less room to find too (those accumulator designs can be quite large!). I also think those storage type are very limited and would only be good for a fraction of oiling backup. I also have my doubts about them possibly holding a full pressure charge over a long period.

With this pump system I can easily hit the manual switch before startup and oil as much as I want before startup. Other uses also possible but not ones that I need. Such as engage the pump if you want when oil pressure is at x psi or any other parameter desired.

For me it is the way to go to address pre-oiling.
I think this is the one I use
