SBF (302W) Oil pan

Since I have had to spring for an aluminum C4 transmission pan to stop a persistant leak, I am starting to consider an aluminum engine oil pan instead of the chrome piece there now for my 302 SBF just to be consistant underside.

Occasionally eBay vendors offer them. Has anyone had any experience with these? My suspicion is they are Chinese made and may have some quality issues, but......

Or, better yet, does someone have a good 'spare' that they no longer need - dirty or not as it will be either Jet Hot or, most likely, powder coated for ease of cleanability. It does need to be a front sump unit only.

Made in China (probably from old Hyundai engine blocks) and $395.00

My Taiwanese chrome pan is starting to look much better

Did you call them and they told you China? I need to know.

I think BLUE THUNDER does one and that is domestic.

Years ago... (when I was still young)...

My brother and I were at a FORD car show and BRANDA had a trailer there selling parts. We wanted the origional open element air cleaner asm. that was so popular in the sixties. I ask the guy, "Is this the same as FORD PN C5ZZ 9600-W?"

"OH YES! This is an exact repro..." and it did look nice. Bought it and went over to put it on his customized tow truck and MADE IN TAIWAN is staring me in the face...

If I want to drive a beater, I will buy Asian. Otherwise, don't be peddling junk!

Much of the Ford SVO stuff has the same little gold sticker - made cheap and sold at an exhorbitant price. I think I went thru the Branda exhibit a couple of times at either Hershey or the Carlisle All Ford show - I guess they're about as good (or bad) as most of the nameplate dedicated vendors

I don't buy foreign, even my beaters are generally Fords - my wife had a Mopar Eagle (read CHEAP)for a while, but at least it had a US manufacturer's nameplate. She has an '03 Escape now after a couple of other Fords.

FORD SVO...er...FORD SVT....er...FORD RACING...

...oh what the Hell...

For the most part they sell junk and parts bought from outside vendors. I bought a set of SBF COBRA rocker covers a few years ago and they came in a kit. The actual covers were of superb quality but all of the included attaching parts were of the oriental persuasion. The oil filler caps were plainly stamped TAIWAN. I called and asked why I was paying a premium price for off-shore crap and the gentleman kindly informed me chrome plating was much cheaper there and they would continue to source them there.

Needless to say...

Whatever their latest acronyn is, this is the website:
http://www.fordracingparts.com/home/home.asp
It looks like Ford Racing Parts. Today.

The water outlet on my latest is Taiwanese as well but I needed a 90 degree with a pipe thread fitting for my fan thermostat and to clear some other claptrap, s-o-o-o-o, the only show in town - Ford (SVO/SVT/Racing?).

They have the chrome plating done offshore to beat OSHA and state epa regs - who care if another Chinese (or Pakistani, Bangledeshi or Singaporean for that matter) dies of heavy metal poisoning

But watch. When the third world becomes a cesspool, guess who pays to clean it up? You and me...

Why not - we are already paying to clean places like the upper Hudson River where GE legally dumped PCB's in the '60s and '70s - what's a few more dollars 'well spent'. The Libs can bail out the world's cess pools as well with our 'gifts'.

(Dam' got my soapbox out again about our local river fiasco)
