check the web sites for the component manufacurers - there are some diagrams there.
Moroso's dry sump plumbing schematic is an example - it seems to be timeless - was a good reference diagram in the 70's, still is.

Here is an example of a Dry Sump.Oil System
An example of a Fuel System.
They started to use Vacuum Pumps in modern Pro Stock engines some years ago to make vacuum in the crank case wich makes horsepower, and many others use this system too...and here is a pic of how that system is set up.
In fact the Pro Stock racers use two separate Vacuum systems now, one belt driven pump and one electric pump wich gives more vacuum for a short time and are only used under the run itself.
A picture of the electric pump wich you can put anywhere on the car close to the engine.
Hope this helps.

Even if you know the basic components and where they are placed on the engine it's easier to understand how they work if you actually see how the lines are routed.

Summit Racing is a good source. A lot of the parts they sell have installation diagrams included that can be downloaded from their web site. Pick a part type like electric water pump and put it in the search box. More than you ever wanted to know is right there. Also try specific Bing or Google image searches like "pro stock engines" Stay away from Yahoo or MicroSoft searches.

But im struggling witha couple problems
In late 80s early 90s
Were crank spun fans being competitively used?
And when were chain driven distributers become more popular? Rather than off the cam?
THe fan just dont quite make sence to me
