302 oil pan question

Hello Ford People!!!
My father-in-law has a 57 Fairlane he is building. Frame is stock. He is using a rack of a 72 pinto. The engine is out of a 91 F150 302 non-4x4. Since the truck was originally a rear-sump oil pan, we cannot use it due to the fact that the rack we installed will interfere with the rear sump pan. The help I need is where/how do I locate a front sump pan that will bolt up to it? Thank you!

Here is a source for front sump pans http://www.kmjent.com/cart/home.php?cat=20164538 they also have the matching front dipstick.You will need the matching pickup also, Melling part#68-S about $10 at your local Autozone.You can drill your existing timing cover for the front dipstick if you plan on keeping the F-150's fuel injection,do it with the pan off and place rags around the crank so any filings will fall to the ground then plug the side dipstick hole.If you are converting to a carburetor then you might want to change to an earlier timing cover that has the provision for a manual fuel pump and the dipstick hole is predrilled.Your rear sump pan and pickup is needed when swapping into a 1949-53 Ford car so it is a sellable item.
