Post Oil Pans

I have a 36 Ford that I put in a 69 chev 350. The front of the oil pan is hitting the cross member of the frame.Does any one know of a oil pan that I can use to get the right space that I need.

Cool

This sounds like you must have a MII crossmember installed to high. Is removing the motor mounts and installing taller ones out of the question? In the front of your present oil pan there is very little clearance between the pan and the crankshaft.

check an early chevelle pan [64-72].chevelles has a full crossmember under the front of the pan.I know when installing a small block or big block in a chevelle that the proper pan must be used.Good Luck.

Can't you reposition the motor mounts on the frame to allow proper clearance? The pan need a certain clearance for the crank.

You could go down and price out another oil there is ones where the dip is in the back you will just need to change your oil sump, but that is no big deal. Just check first to see if the oil pan with the dip in the back is going to hit your stearing assembly i had that problem before. good luck

Oil pan

The '55-'57 Chevy oil pans is the one you'll need. It's design with a longer "shallow end" and then drops down almost to a 90 degree to accomodate the oil pump. But finding one might be difficult.
