Chevy 292 inline 6 oil pan

I'm working on a Chevy 292 engine and I don't have an oil pan specifically for a 292. I do have a 250 pan which bolts up ok and clears the oil pickup, crank and rods. According to Leo Santucci in the "Chevrolet Inline Six Cylinder Power Manual" the 292 pan is deeper in the front and keeps the oil away from the spinning crank assembly. Has anyone used a 250 pan on a 292 for street use or know where I can get a 292 pan? Thanks.

re;292 oilpan

check the boneyards,this was a common engine in late 60's early 70's commercial vehicles,such as panel trucks,small flatbeds,etc. the yards should be crawling with them. tom

Easy to find

The 292 is very plentiful in many bone yards. You should be able to find one for a song. Id go that way then you know it will work.

292

I don't know about the oil pan. Can't help you there. Sorry. I bought a 292 for my 1950 Chevy Deluxe. I know nothing about this engine & have a hard time finding info on the web. Do you have any info you can send me? Or any websites you can forward?

Appreciate your help. Thanks

Dawn

re;292 chevy

if i'm not incorrect;the 292 uses the same block as the 250. research the oil pans for the 250 and you should find one to suit your needs. tom

IIRC the 292 has a taller deck than the 250, along about 1-3/4" difference. There are differences in the motor mount locations, the lifter cover is taller on the 292, but the heads are similar and at a glance they do resemble each other. The 292 uses a big coolant bypass hose off of the water neck- that's probably the easiest way to tell them apart at a glance/distance.

Chevy 292 inline 6 oil pan

the Chevy 292 inline 6 oil pan is best set for the depth of the oil pump ,and the oil pump pick up tube.
you could use a 250 oil pan, but, you would have to the whole bottom of it off, and make the side walls taller, and then weld the bottom back on, to accommodate the 292 oil pump & tube.
trust me on this, just because that 250 pan bolts right up, doesnt mean, its gonna work
