Can someone explain the purpose of the windage tray that fastens to the main bolts on a 96 5.7 vortec ? Not that I built the engine and forgot to put it on...ooops.

this might help, the main function of the windage tray or screen is to help maintain a higher volume of oil covering the oil pump pick-up, and reduce the oil in the crank case dragged around the lower engine with the spinning crank assembly
