I’ve tried searching and come up dry.
Is there a difference between a pickup truck (‘79 f-150) front sump oil pan and one for a passenger car? I need a little more room around my crossmember and possibly to move the engine back a half inch to an inch. However the 79 truck pan I have won’t allow it.

I have a 1979 F350 and the front sump pan is different/larger from the standard passenger car oil pans. There might me something to be gained here if you feel such a mod warrants the effort required.  I can get some measurements tomorrow.

Great, I don’t need a bunch, a half inch more would help solve a few problems. Even if I could move the engine back 1/2” to an inch. Thanks!

The sump portion of the front sump pan in my 1979 F350 extends 12-1/2” rearward before it starts to slope upward.

The sump portion of the front sump passenger car pan in my shop extends 10” rearward before it starts to slope upward.

Both pan’s sumps measure the same at 8-1/2” deep.

Paul do you know if the pass car measurements apply to the CJ pan too?

Today at the shop I measured front-to-rear the sump of an OEM CJ-style pan and it was the same as the front sump passenger car pan notes above, at about 10 inches.
