Oil pan for my ´69 Mustang

Post  Ashburner on February 2nd 2014, 3:23 pm

Hi guys,

I´m currently building a 521cui engine for my ´69 Mustang with stock front suspension and steering components.
Just made a bad buy with a rear sump oil pan which does not fit because of steering rods are in the area of the rear sump. Seems there´s no way to use rear sump pans so I wanted to know if anyone can give me a recommendation which oil pan will fit my application.

Thanks
Franz

Franz I have a modified front sump pan that I used to use in mine when it had a stock suspension, I extended the sump 2" your welcome to it if you think it will work?

You could insert and weld a piece of tubing in the oil pan for the drag link to pass or take advantage of the offering!

thanks 69bluehotrod,
you´re offering your modified pan if I got you right.
To be honest I´m looking for a new, plug and play part.

I appreciate your offer

Dave,
I thought about that but wasn´t sure if I want to cut/weld a $450 pan  affraid 


thanks
Franz

A front sump is about your choice with a stock setup but a stock baffled pan will fill the bill in most applications. How fast are you looking to go?

The car will be mostly street driven. maybe some fun drag racing but nothing serious.
Horsepower will be 600-650
Currently the Canton 15-764 pan would be an option, or cutting a hole in my moroso 20625 pan and weld a pipe in it like Dave mentioned

thanks
Franz

I run a Ford Racing M-6675-T460F oil pan I purchased from Lem, maybe he still sells them.
I had a stock oil pump and had to change it to one with a removable pickup for the pan.
It is a T pan with baffles, holds 6 qts, 7 qts with a regular filter.
With even a stock pan using the Crites II engine mounts, the stock crossmember has to be lowered a bit.
I run a custom crossmember that clears the pan better than the stock one and doesn't need to be lowered.
The Ford pan is the same as the Canton 15-764 pan which uses a 15-763 pickup I believe.

Franz,
A well designed front sump pan can do a nice job. My 58 Custom 300 also requires a front sump pan. Mine was crude but worked. I made a new sump area and angled the rear wall forward at the top and added a baffle to keep the oil from climbing out of the sump on acceleration. I also added a baffle in the floor of the pan with trap doors to keep oil at the pickup. I ran that pan for about 20 years with my 466 and later a 514.
It would run 9.90..10.0 and had solid oil pressure.
That ugly pan is still on the 514 sitting in the corner. I have since swapped to a dry sump system.
I recommend adding a brace from the oil pump cover to the main cap bolt/stud, especially on front sump builds.

What i run on my 67 comet

Post  manofmerc on February 4th 2014, 8:16 am

  rabbit The closest I can come to your mustang is my 67 comet dragcar I have the milidon deep sump #30929 it is eight qts plus one for the filter.It fits just fine .A stock pan should fit your chassis also milidon has a stock replacement pan too30745 it is 5 qts plus one for the filter .The deep sump has baffles and I believe the stock replacement has baffles also .And if you can come up with a factory pan do as others have said add a baffle and you should be good to go .Doug
