Using those Rods, you may not have to clearance the Block pan rails at all.
Milodon pan may make a little more HP at Hi rpm, depends on Pan & Tray design.

PatM Just a couple of thoughts . . . Most all of the aluminum cast oil pans will not work in a stroker application (they are a bit narrower internally), at least they claim they don't work on a 400 . . . . Also, when buying studs (like ARPs, etc) for the mains, I think a 383 requires buying the 400 studs. I think. Gotta get the windage tray down below the crank throw. How did I come to this conclusion, you ask? ? ? Bought learnin'

Yes, the last one I used didn't need any massaging of pan.
The older Blocks & pans normally need more grinding & a few hammer taps on pan rail for Rod clearance. Type of Rod will determine how much.

SSedan64 The 96-98 Vortec truck engines came with a windage tray so that may be a cheaper option, depending on Tray size/shape.

popo1984 The machine work was done at Houston Engine and Balancing. To tell you the truth I dont know. I do know that the machine shop I used has a very good reputation in Houston. If they went through the extra steps to bore and hone with deck plates then I would assume they would align hone with the studs installed since the block was returned from the machine shop with the studs in the block.

popo1984 Ok thanks alot. I was confused with what I actually needed

edge I have a Moroso #20190 pan on my 383 with studs and Milodon windage tray and it works fine. http://www.edgesz28.com/edgesz28/engine.htm

See page 36 of Moroso Catalog: http://www.moroso.com/catalog/pdf/Oi...ccessories.pdf

You will need the #20205 pan for an 86' and newer block
