Oval track pans usually only pick up on the right(pass) side of the pan.

The PRO/CAM pan should work with any mini starter, I would go with it.

So I can use an oval track one then. The Pro/Cam is the 1st one I posted, the 2nd gold colored one is a Milodon road race one, about $100 more.

Unless you plan on making some long high speed right hand turns, the P/C pan will work fine. The road race pan has no pickup provision on the left side either.

Well exhausting all options and realizing that the way the frame of my car was designed, without major modification to the mounting of the steering rack or cross member, I can not fit a conventional style oil pan or any of the easily available dry sump ones. Also I called a few of the manufacturers and they assured me they do not fit with a block mounted starter. Sooooooo, this is my easiest and cheapest solution to the problem. To modify the oil pan that I already have to fit the block mounted starter. Im not thrilled to have to do this, but like I said, my easiest alternative. I needed just over 1/4" of clearance so I cut out a section and will be able to fit the 3rd sump in a similar location as to where it originated without changing performance.


Currently the pan is at my buddies getting welded up. Thanks for all yall's input..
