Here are several - I've used the B&M as well as the Summit house brand

These both work just fine, but may seep a wee bit

I have always loved those trucks and that one is fine example.

What are you going to do with it?

#1 It needs a hood safety latch, # 2 figure out the security system, I think it is a sequence button type system, ( a button has to be pushed a specific number of time to acctuvate ) or several other things in sequence, my idea is to completely eliminate the system,, and start over,, that could be a real head scratcher,,
# 3 adjust the drivers side front fender, for the hood to fender gap, # 4 tune up, oil and tranny fluid change, mostly just little things that need attention,,,

I contemplated welding a bung on the pan to make a drain, but when I saw what they wanted for a decent chrome pan with a plug I changed my mind. I paid $15 at last year's swap meet for a new one still wrapped in plastic.
There's not much clearance inside a TH350 pan between the valve body/filter, and the pan, so it might be tough to weld anything inside. I'd cut a 3/8 pipe plug in half and braze one half of it to the side of the pan down low. Then drill a hole through it to drain, and install a brass plug. Most TH350 pans have a magnet inside from the factory, so no need for a magnetic plug.

Finger still sore.
But lawnmower moved under it's own power this afternoon.
Tomorrow----I put the deck on and maybe cut some grass.

(put a bigger, badder transmission in my mower----this thing hauls now.
Hills no longer an issue)

Problem was, I did mine back in 1990. Didn't know about internet then, much less Summit racing. Got the drain plug and a nut from Big A Auto parts. That was in Wyoming. Is Big A even still around ?

Heck in 1990 you still had to call 1-800 and talk to a REAL person at Summit ... but that's about the time I did one on my ancient F350's C6 transmission.

No car work today - but did make a stop for our RV to prevent the top of of the kitchen slide out from moving while traveling over rough roads. I also discovered that I can make a mess on two work benches, a table saw, a radial arm saw and a drill press while cutting, milling and drilling 4 small pieces of 2x4 .

Well I started out tonight with a very cool step, bolting in my instrument cluster assembly. It ended up being a bit frustrating as I can't figure out how to plug some things in. Sounds easy, but damn something isn't making sense. Will hit the assembly manual tonight.

Big A left my little town in the early nineties.

The last one I saw was in Saratoga, Wyoming, and I left there in 1994.

Excellent idea and execution.

Gives me something to think about with my build.
