Preferred Oil Pan....

Post  1EFF100 on September 18th 2018, 11:03 am

....For My Application.

Finally began assembly of my 521 and just noticed on the stock pan that the mount surface for the drain plug is cockeyed so sealing will be a problem.
Can you guys recommend a stock type or maybe something a little tricker than stock?
This engine is going in my '74 Cougar street car so will need a front sump. RPMs will never exceed 6000 and probably will rarely see that.

Kind of got turned off from Milodon. Ordered one for a 5.0 I built several years ago and it was warped from new.

Thanks.

My new Moroso pan had a slight wrop to it but after installing it it sealed fine the instructions even said it might have a wrop from the welding. It also said after is run for awhile and when it is removed it should be straight. It was a pain to install but I will be pulling it before long to freshen up the engine then we see if it is straight

Whoever manufactures a stock type pan with a simple horizontal baffle like a CJ pan had, will be fine.

I never did get that Milodon to seal correctly. Always had a weep at one of the corners.
