I had to clearance my Mr. Gasket 5qt (6qt counting the filter) pan,rear counterweight hit it slightly,internally balanced 406,a few taps from a hammer and it had plenty of clearance,also had to trim the gasket slightly. Things dont always fit as they should,aah the joys of hotrodding.

I was kind of leery about trimming the crossmember only because I don't trust my welding on a piece like that, seemed harder, and I was worried about alignment. Due to the cost effectiveness (haha) of trimming the pan, I figured we would try it first.

I would have liked to make a new crossmember that would have been very nice
