5.0 swap oil pan

I'm swapping a '86 5.0L in a falcon and the oil pan is a dual sump design and the front sump is not clearing the rack steering but im having trouble finding a rear sump oil pan, does Any body know what swaps or who has one aftermarket?

Also will i need to change the oil pickup?

Most Ford engines have a sump in the front because that`s where the oil pump is, so if you went to a rear sump only oil pan, you would need a longer pickup that reached to the rear sump.

I have a '91 5.0 in my '61 Ranchero. I used a 70s oil pan with the sump in front. You just have to use a 70s timing cover with the dipstick hole in front, and plug the one in the block. Also, swap the pickup tube for the front sump design.

Thanks lluciano77,

I have a question about your Ranchero though.

how wide of tires do you have in the rear and did you keep
the same rear axle or swap out,

Just a little curious it a recent problem for me trying to fit wider tires

I have my car stashed at the in-laws house right now so I can't go look at the tires. I think they are 275-65-R15s, but I could be wrong. They physically measure 27' tall and are about 10" wide.

I used the 8" rearend out of my old Maverick. The Maverick rearend is about 1/2" narrower than the Ranchero rear. I had to get new brackets to bolt the leaf springs to the rear because on the Maverick there are staggered shocks. One that mounts to the front and one that mount to the rear. The Ranchero's shocks are both in front. I got the new plates from a 60's Mustang.

I had to cut the wheel wells a little in front of the wheels. If you look at the wheel well you can see how the wheels will hit with a taller tire. I cut them from where the well meets the cab of the car and made a nice radius clear of the tire up to where the rest of the wheel well comes around. Some people make a template of the rear half and copy it for the front. I haven't tried that, but it would probably work. It makes your rear wheel well look like the front.

Then, there is a 90o lip at the bottom of the wheel well. I folded in up and in so that I could get the extra 1/2" clearance width wise. I used a torch and 2- 5 lb. mallets to do that.

The e-brake hooked up the same as the stock rearend. I had to get a new soft brakeline for the 8" rear that would hook up to the existing hard brakelines. I went to Kragens and matched up the fittings with one that worked. The stock fittings are smaller on one end.

I used the C4 tranny out of the Maverick and I used the driveline from the Maverick also.

pan

I think you need to look for a pan off of a late 70's early 80's bronco or 4x4 pick-up. They are a rear sump pan. make sure it's a 302 pan and not a 351 pan because the front seal diameter is different..... And you will also need the oil screen(pick up) from the same set-up
