I'm a regular guy that has a weakness for collecting cars. It's not my fault that they follow me home.

More Parts!

So as I found out a while ago, a car 390 oil pan will not work with the aftermarket engine crossmember.  Due to its front sump design it will not clear.  Where do rear sump oil pans for 360/390 engines come from you ask?  Pre-76 4x4 pickups of course! Found one on Craigslist down in Aurora, pan, oil pump pickup and dipstick for $80.  Picked it up and cleaned it up in the parts washer.  Once I finish sandblasting it, I think I'll powdercoat it Ford Blue.  Good chance to test out the oven.
