Post oil pan for 318 mopar

My son has a 1974 dodge dart supersport, his 360 is shot, and he would like to put in a 318 to make a driver out of it, He got a 318 out of a old van it is a 318 1969. but it has a larger rear main, so the pan he has from his old 360/318 will not fit. The bolt pattern is ok but the larger rear main makes it so it will not fit. I guess what we need is a 318 oil pan front sump standard depth???any thoughts ?? thanks

Van pans were different,bigger rear main was used,in the early heavy duty application of vehicle usage,I believe. For the car,light duty applications,you should be using a rear sump pan,for "K" frame clearance. The only way you would use a front sump pan,providing you have "K" member clearance,is if you have the long extended,to the front oil pump pickup,I would change that for the rear sump pickup and car pan. I have an early '70's van motor in my 1967 Barracuda,the same chassis as your Dart,an "A" body,and I had to change mine. Is there a reason why you were changing the pan?
