working on my son in laws 17-10 sanger flat bottom.going with a sbc since this boat came set up this way,mounts ect. ect. we have 7 3/4 inchs from the pan rail to the bottom of the floor front to back of the engine.were in the world do we find a V DRIVE PAN to fit?
and were should the oil pump pick up be located? since the engine is mounted backwards,i would think the pick up should be at the timeing cover location.and the pan would need trap doors/baffles to keep the pick up submerged in oil at all times.the engine we have mocked up in the boat sits real even with the stringers,ie. no big slant.please help as this is my first time working on v drive type boats.
ps. i will have mike post some pics. so you can see what were dealing with.
