Oil Pan / block fitment

Post  jasonf on May 12th 2016, 8:37 am

Is there something different about a C9/Dove block that some oil pans don't fit?

The reason I ask is the feedback/comment on this oilpan stating it won't fit on a 69 block.

Might be referring to a Boss 9 block with 4 bolt front and rear caps

Some AFTERMARKET oil pans just don't fit and need some persuasion. That problem is usually not there with anything O.E.M.
I have no idea what they mean so, Dave may be absolutely correct.

The feedback comment of "This is Oil pan not fit for 460 year 69!!" is from an end user, not the manufacturer.  The end user is either inexperienced or he received a defective pan.  As designed, that Canton oil pan should fit all year passenger car blocks without issue.

The C9AE Boss 429 blocks had 4-bolt main caps on #1 through #4, but not #5. The Boss 429 block had a 2-bolt #5 main cap.  The #1 4-bolt main cap does not interfere since the pan rail continues forward to the timing cover before turning in toward the front radial pan seal.
