Hi All,

I'm new to the Cadi world & stumped here. I just picked up a 472 with turbo 400 trans I plan on putting in my 41 Ford Hotrod pickup. The problem here is the oil pan is hitting the cross memeber & won't allow the motor to sit in the frame rails like I want it to. I want to run a reverse oil pan & oil pick up tube? With out spending huge $$$$ is there any other options out there ?

Thanks,

Hellbilly04

You might get by with a 425 mid sump oil pan. Check the Ebay link below for one on there now.

If that dosen't work, be prepared to shell out about $200 for an eldorado rear sump pan and tube if you can find one. I may have one available soon that I will not be using as I bought a custom pan and girdle from Potter. Like I said, be prepared to spend about $200 for the eldo pan & tube.

Good Luck
