I wonder if you could add some sort of recirc pump that routes between the drain plug and the fill plug on the side. If setup probably you might be able to create a splash condition with the oil. Of course if the bearings need to turn that might not be a solution.

At the moment the attachment of the A-frame to the front chassis is not clean. With mounting brackets going under the front valance, lowering ground clearance. The brackets are in a local shop, and a new sub-frame is being made that attaches at the front over-riders (which bolt to the chassis). However they have to cut-up the original over-riders for that to work so I am trying to source some replacements before the cut into them...just in case it doesn't work out!
Would these over riders be what you're looking for?
