as i said, i'm scratchbuilding this car so i don't have an "original car". in this case i will just have to use the front spindles from a vehicle with front steer. i was planning to go with pre-1981 ford truck spindles(which are rear steer), so i'll switch to post-1981(which are front steer). but if you foresee any problems with this please let me know!

not really, as a vortec pan is a truck pan..

the f body pan the sump area is farthar back than a vette pan 1980 vintage..

On my factory Vortec 350 pan (it's similar to the one below) I'm getting about 3-3/4" from the pan rail to the first (front most) step, about 5-1/2" at the second step before the rear sump.

BOBCRMAN@aol.com There are many different stock SBC pans. You will have to be more specific.
