Need info regarding 351C deep sump oil pan

Recommended Posts

So the old engine is out and the new (extra 100 hp) engine is ready to go in. It has a deep sump oil pan, but, unfortunately, the sump is on the wrong end (in rear where my steering is) as opposed to the front. While I can swap the stock oil pan off the old engine, I would prefer the larger capacity. Can someone suggest a good deep sump replacement pan that will fit in without major surgery?

Sounds like you have a Fox chassis pan. You'll need to change the pan and the oil pump pickup. My recommendation is the Moroso 20558 and matching 24558 pickup. Made in CT across the Sound from you.

Unfortunately they are out of stock and not expected for at least a month (9/13/21). I cannot find any of the higher volume replacement pans in stock, and may have to swap in my original

Missed that, and yeah, about a month before they hit stock. You can look at Canton 15-710


If your stock pan is the CJ/Boss type with the scraper and slosh baffle, then I'd have no issue using it and filling to 6 quarts. Boss 351 dipsticks were calibrated for a 6qt fill with no other changes.

Milodon makes a nice one, you may have to clearance the crossmember a tiny bit for the very center of the pan




"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

+1 for Kevco. It has nice trap doors to keep the oil where it needs to be during acceleration.
