Wanted - aluminum oil pan
Posted by: kmart356 ()

Looking for a good used aluminum oil pan. This is for a '63 102hp.
A few dings is OK as long as it is flat where it needs to be. I know I can get a new one from Clarks but what fun is that? smileys with beer

Thanks for looking. Ken

I've bought a few used ones but I've found that most of the time they are within 20% of costing what a new one does from Clark's with the bolts. I wished I bought new ones as I was cleaning them. I did get one that was already clean.
I have a deep pan I'll never use you could probably talk me out of. It's nice and dirty and doesn't even come with bolts or a pickup!

Do all require an extended pickup, or are there any that can be used with stock pickup?

It just depends on what you use the car for...


Autocrossing / Road course and Drag you need the deep pickup!

For the street... if you just want the extra oil and better cooling..... stock is fine...

You still use the stock dipstick with these and the normal level marks..

The super deep ones like the OFFY pan are low and can be punctured, best to use a shallow finned pan on a car.

Because of low ride height with 13" wheels and small diameter race tirs, 205/60 Toyo 888, I use an Otto pan and a modified Yenko baffle on YS 037

Agreed - any brand suggestions.

I use the Clark's pan and it even scrapes speed bumps occasionally. I also use the standard pickup with it.
