oil pan baffle

I changed motors in my car from a small block chevrolet 283 to a 350. The 350 had a deep pan on it so I swapped pans. I used the pump and pickup from the 350 but took out the spacer that made the pump lower for the lower pan. When I am going down hill and hit the brakes My oil pressure drops off drastically and if I am not completely full I lose oil pressure completely. I am leaking at the front seal and am going to tear it apart. What do I need to do to the pan. I don't think there is any baffling in the pan that is on it. Do I need any?

Yes you need a baffle. Even stock engines use them. My 354 hemi does anyway, can't remember if SBCs do or not. Anyway, they do work.

Baffled?

I can't say all, but every post 68 sbc i've seen had a baffled sump. I have cut a baffle out of a damaged sbc pan and used it in a 308 Holden, and made one similar to fit in a Falcon 351c sump. Sounds like you need one, and a trap door wouldn't hurt. Talk to a local dirt track racer for sources.
