Reverse the oil pan

What is done on small block Fords is to build a pan with the sump in the proper place and install a longer pickup tube to relocate the oil pickup to the proper place...Luck has it on the Fords in that the factory did that for us on certain engines. the 4.3 has a fair aftermarket so maybe someone has done this already for you but it is not an overwhelming thing to do on your own..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
