A vertical Intek built runs good..why change it?  Run it as is...there are no problems to have to re engineer.
 
Ok I know that this engine is fine the way it is it runs smooth and great. Im not doing this to fix an issue or for performance and im not reinventing the wheel just have an old intek i want to change up, do somthing different with it. Ive got the time for it so why not. I also think its more cosmeticly appealing. Also if i can even pull it off the engine could be used in a variety of different setups.

I tried this very same idea. I made a pick up for the stock oil pump and tested it on the bench with a custom tool to turn the oil pump with a drill to see if the stock pump could pull the oil out of the bottom of the block. The issues i ran into was the oil drained out of the system when the motor was turned off. Also I realized no oil was getting to the rockers or valves. As for the carb issue i had an E.C. carb adapter and used that to rotate the carb 90 degrees. I also made a custom engine stand to hold the motor using the stock mounting pattern. I ran the motor for about a min and nothing blew up but I shut it off because no oil was getting to the valves.

Good to hear, I have been trying to find a good but cheap pump for it, been very busy trying to set aside some money for the project?. So the pump couldn't get it to the valves what size tube are you using to feed the pump? Get any pressure measurements?

The valves are splash lube even in the verticle setup. Its takes rpm to get it there. and a closed system meaning everything in olace like valve covers. Vannys are the same way and they lube the rockers no problem. SO rockers arent your worries the the obsticle your gonna have to figure out is the drain back after shutting off. Disect a horizontal vanny pump and pick up you will learn alot.

George summed it up. The main issue is stopping the drain back.
