CSB oil pan

Will a 327 oil pan with a driver side dipstick fit a 350 with a drivers side dipstick? I am wondering if the crank journals will have an effect on the swap.

Yes. Check to see that you use the correct front seal.

The size of the seal you need to use depends on the pan. Measure down from the mounting surface where it bolts to the block down to the deepest part of the seal flange.

2 1/4" = thin seal
2 3/8" = thick seal

EDIT- You'd be doing yourself a big favor to use studs in the corner positions- especially if the engine's in the car.
