Small block ford rear sump pan?

Has any one used the rear sump pan sold by speedway motors? Made for the small ford. If so will it give the clearance I need to keep my I-beam axle.This is for my 36 Ford. I still have the D.O.H.C.. But I hate the thought of cutting a set of real good fenders. To make it fit. I'am up in the air on this one. I picked up a 5.0 H.O. Mustang engine over the weekend. I know a chevy is easy. But I don't want what a million others have.

rear sump pan

Hi I have not used the pan you are talking about, But back in the 70s I decided to put a 351 boss in my late model dirt tracker. I had to fabricate a rear sump for it. I removed the lower half of the pan ,reversed it ,welded it back up and had to fabricate a channel in the pan for the pickup tube to go to the the pickup. I connected the pump to the pickup with flexable tubing . You just dropped the pan about4 " and disconnected the tube . It worked great . Remember you dont have pressure on the suction side of the pump.
I am installing a 351 w in a 1954 mercury I am restoring and it has a rear sump pan. Wish i could afford a 5.0 cammer. I has a great history. My son just bought a new F150 with the 5.0 cammer in it, coupled with a 6speed auto. he said it is much stronger than his 08 5.4 triton. Have a good day Nial

Early Broncos used a rear sump. I think some of the specialty Bronco off road suppliers have them.

5.0 mustang ?

The 5.0 mustang double hump pan has a little more front clearance . might work if the engine can set a little higher.

The Ford Racing pan/kit shown by Speedway is most likely exactly the same arrangement that's currently on your 5.0L. Check your clearance between the oil pump and the pan and my guess (and recollection) is that there is enough room that you can "section" it some, weld on a new bottom at that small front hump and make it work. A half inch spacer at the two motor mount bolts might give you a bit more space as well and not screw up anything else. The Moroso pan - I think I would stick with the OEM Ford and make my own mods as necessary to fit the application.

Rear sump ford

Thanks for the feed back guys. I just got back on the 36 after a year or so.
I got the 5.0 H.O. in a swap. And thought with this engine I would not have to cut the fenders. To be honest with you.I have never had the pan off this engine. But I think if I section the pan. It would work. The more I think about it.
I have so much money in the mark 8 engine. I will just cut the fenders and save the pieces.
