Finned Aluminum Oil Pans
1 Attachment(s)
Has anyone ever seen a Finned Aluminum Oil Pan like this for a BBC ANYWHERE'S ???

As long as I been building cars,, I can say I never seen one before...:drunk:
Don't think they ever made one.... Maybe someone has seen one..

Not sure why it was never made... 06-12-2013 05:37 PM

Never seen a big block one.. They LEAK anyways...The one on my T bucket leaks thru the porous casting.. Had to do a lot of t l c with a die grinder and a couple coats of Glyptal on the inside of the pan.. With a thick rubber pan gasket it now stays dry..

What Shine said x2
We live in the land of potholes, frost heaves and manhole covers. They ground down one of the roads here and so the surface you drove on was down about oh 3 maybe 4 inches; a guy during the Syracuse Nationals car show week caught his I beam axle on the exposed manhole lip at like 35mph or more.

Same thing with those extra-deep cast aluminum transmission pans.

I knew about them.. :nono: Too big and too much, Plus you will have to polish it...:nono:

how about you get a big block pan & a small block finned pan. cut up the sb pan and weld , polish it up! you would be the first to do this & perfect for the show crowd ! You can do it, we all know your skill!
