stroker clearanced oil pan
 
When building a sbc 383 (350 block, Scat crank, 3.75 stroke) is a stroker clearanced oil pan usually needed?

Hi,
I did one for a 87 camaro & used the stock pan with no interference, it was a scat stroker Assembly.

No worries in my stock LT1 pan with a 3.75" crank. Some guys even go with a 3.800" crank in a stock pan.

I'm sure it varies with the pan design, but they seem to be fine in most applications.

On my stroker I used a stock appearing 5 Qt oil pan from www.midwestmotorsportsinc.com.

Pan came 'in the white' so I painted it Chevy orange.

Pan fit ok, but the scraper was hitting a couple of crank throws. Bent down the scraper a little, with a ball pein hammer, until I got clearance.

One extra qt. of oil is what I wanted and got.
