    Default oil pan question

    I HAVE READ THE THREADS ON HERE ABOUT MILODON PANS, I DONT WANT TO BRING ALL THIS UP AGAIN, BUT I HAD BOUGHT A MILODON PAN YEARS AGO (BEFORE I KNEW OF THE PROBLEMS) IT HAS BEEN SITTING IN THE BOX , ONLY TAKEN OUT ONCE TO LOOK AT. THE QUESTION IS, I AM BUILDING A SKI BOAT, NOT RACE BOAT, SO I WAS WONDERING IF THIS PAN WILL BE OK? I WOULD THINK THAT IT WOULD BE OK CONSIDERING I AM NOT RACING, NO CRAZY SPEEDS GOING ON HERE, I HATE TO GET RID OF IT, BUT THEN AGAIN I WOULD RATHER CHANGE OIL PAN THAN SCREW MY NEW CRANK, OR MOTOR UP,, SO WILL IT BE OK JUST FOR A SKI BOAT?? IT WAS THE V-DRIVE BIG BLOCK CHEVY PAN, NOT SURE HOW MANY QUARTS IT TOOK, I WOULD HAVE TO GET THE BOX,,,,I WAS GOING TO ORDER THE PICK UP FOR IT, THEN I STARTED READING ALL THE NEGATIVE INFO ABOUT THEM , SO WHAT DO YOU THINK???

    I put up a thread in the dyno section, "Pulled dist, what causes this....." on the top of page 8 Bob (GN7) mentioned a Dan Olson pick up, here's the part number PU427FS. I called Olson to check on price, $95. It looks good

    Eddie,
    I just went through the same thing. I was running a Milodon pan on my old motor, 496 TT, with no issue. This is basically a ski boat also, but occasionally we will go heavy on the loud pedal. Well, we are putting together a new 565 TT and are going with a new Olson pan. I'm going with the new pan for two reasons, first being the Olson pan is a far superior pan. The other reason was that to get the Milodon pan to work on the new Dart block would have been a cluster. I have other plans for this motor down the road and the new pan will work better for that also.

    You could just modify the existing Milodon pickup.The problem seems to be, in my opinion, that the pickup is too small for the type of screen they use. The Olson uses a similar screen/perf plate on some of their pickups, but the box is much larger. Its also possible that you would have to modify the Olson pickup to work with the Milodon pan and widange tray.
    Canton also makes an excellent pickup and its only 72.00.

    The oil pan is the only non moving part that can completely destroy an engine if it doesnt work correctly.

    So is this the pan that should be used for a typical v-drive flywheel driven BBC ?

    Yes, that is Canton's flywheel forward V drive pan.

    I use the Jet boat Canton pan, no complaints.
    Used to have a Milidon on it, broke one PU, put the HD one on it and it never broke, but DID see the PSI drop under WOT.
    It doesn't do that with the Canton pan.

    Be advised, if you go with the canton, the dipstick tube MUST be trimmed to read correctly.
    The dipstick is a universal application, so once you have the correct volume of oil in the pan, trim the tube for the correct reading.
    (At least that was what I had to do with mine. I actually had a few dipsticks laying around so I trimmed the tube and used a Moroso stick to come up with the correct set up)

    I like that pan and its reasonably priced too!~ I have Moroso pan right now (9qt) and it seems to do just fine, dont have any psi drop with it, but we did alot of pickup location work on it. Draining it is a PITA!!!!
