hey well i ordered an oil pan Moroso MOR-20460 which i thought would be alright but i guess they engine shop is telling me its way too deep and i should go shorter and wider if need be.

MOR-20460
- 8 quarts
- 9.750" depth
- 4.250" maximum stroke
- also MOR-23030 windage tray
- also MOR-25970 oil dipstick
- also Summit SES-3-90-08-007 oil pump/pickup

i CANNOT use this and all we be for sale. but wondering who is riding a big block and what oil pan are you using with no complications. the shop would like to know ASAP so they can order me a pan.

I am using the stock oil pan. I think my big block was from an early 80s truck.

When I mocked up the big block, I had a Moroso 8qt. deep pan. It hung down below the front crossmember by 2 inches. It fit, but hung too low for my needs. I ended up using a Big End BEP 43011 6qt pan with kickout sump. Fits good. I'm sure Moroso makes the same style pan for a few more dollars.

if the car would hook, probably..
i finally got the low-down on g-body suspension mods and will be replacing and relocating the upper control-arms with adjustable units and relocation brackets, when i'm done the "instant-center" will be 6" off the ground and 50" in front of the rear-axle centerline. throw in some double-adjustable shocks..then see if i can break the axles..lol
