You may need to do some reading to get your mind wrapped around the project. A small block should practically fall into place in a '75 El Camino. Get this book and read some of the finer points of engine swapping. After all, you don't know what you don't know.

There are several different sizes and shapes of LS oil pans, the link provided by the nitro man will get you headed in the right direction with the pan.
