Bad for trying to fill up both corners while in a big side (all the oil moves to one end of the pump).

Maybe you just aren't hitting sides as big as me?  LOL
you can only throw a side and high as your front end goes up. any higher you end up three wheeling. lol

well fill your tanks to the top,and get some filter tubes...

the bad is when you want to change one seal, you have twice the weight, oil,plumbing and wiring to deal with.

the good is, they are a little more rare, so its neat having somthing that looks different than every other trunk out there

if u want to piece one together you need exactly what youd get with a 2 pump setup..the only difference is youre not gonna use the 2 individual tanks...theres different way to plumbing them as well..u can plumb them to return back into the block...or u can have it return the fluid back thru the top of ur tank....

the biggest draw back to doing a whammy is if u have to rebuild a pumphead or do any kind of work to 1 pump, you have to disassemble both in order to remove the pumps out...however u can solve much of that problem by using swivel fittings coming out of the blocks...that way u can just loosen the swivel and it will allow u to remove just the pumps and leave all the fittings and dumps in place in the trunk..so when u go to reassemble you just tighten the swivel back up...which is also nice becuz u dont have re-bleed ur front hose lines since u disconnected the pump behind the check valve and not infront of them

what about when you conect it back up. you would have a small air bubble. do you just work the pump and dump a few times to get rid of it, or does it not effect anything.
