    Sound off if you have a Boss 351 or '72 R-code

    As a double B1 owner I am fortunate to have an 11K mile unrestored all original museum piece (for sale too), and a 39K mile driver that is a blast to drive. Everyone knows/remembers this body style; great fun at the gas station!

    Banging noise coming from the oil pan - 1973 351C original 4V engine......

    UPDATE: Found a near perfect CJ oil pan about an hour from me and picked it up on Saturday. Will install soon. This will solve the issue; the measured clearance is 11/32" without the gasket. The sump clearance is approx. 1/2". Thanks to all for your help!

    Yes, I'm thinking about doing just that, but still also wanting a good pan if I can find one.

    Banging noise coming from the oil pan - 1973 351C original 4V engine......

    Finally pulled the pan and found the rear counter balance nicking the end of the rear baffle. If Ford had made it .100" shorter it would have missed! But what a loud noise it made! The reason it hit was a previous owner jacked up the engine from the oil pan and crushed it about 1/2" at the front...

    Banging noise coming from the oil pan - 1973 351C original 4V engine......

    Put the car back on the lift this afternoon. Using the stethoscope; SUPER LOUD BANGING on the oil pan below the 4 & 8 connecting rods. Pulled an original cobra jet oil pan I had on the shelf, and their is a low profile baffle under the rear 4 connecting rods. I'm guessing and hoping this is...

    Banging noise coming from the oil pan - 1973 351C original 4V engine......

    Yes, I have a stethoscope. The target noise is a loud banging noise on the oil pan and a small ticking noise on the block.

    Banging noise coming from the oil pan - 1973 351C original 4V engine......

    This is what I am hoping for, and nothing more. But I do need to make one more attempt to properly hunt down the origin location of the noise.

    Banging noise coming from the oil pan - 1973 351C original 4V engine......

    Yes, it is in-sync with RPM. Yes, good consistent oil pressure. What could possibly cause this? Dip stick? Baffle too close to the oil pick-up?  And yes, I guess I must remove the pan. But if then I see nothing, I have not properly identified the noise or location. But, it would be best to find...

    Banging noise coming from the oil pan - 1973 351C original 4V engine......

    Yikes! I've got a noise coming from the oil pan on my all original low miles 1973 351c four bolt engine. I put the car on the lift and can hear it very well. No evidence of something hitting the pan, I'm thinking something could be hitting the baffle. Oil pressure is very good. Anyone ever hear...

    Original 1971 429 Cobra Jet engine........should be reunited with the original chassis!!

    With four horizontal lines in that "double-struck" F, it can't be an H. Also, did Lorain (H plant code) ever build any 429 CJ motors? I think they were all built at Dearborn by 1971, even for Torino Cobras. Inputs please!

    Original 1971 429 Cobra Jet engine........should be reunited with the original chassis!!

    Yes, they are D0OE-R and the date code is SPEC. It appears the heads have never been off the engine, and the seller also stated this.
