    Default Windage tray and oil pan

    I am running a 77' 454 and I picked up a canton oil pan with the windage tray and everything in it. What are you guys doing with the stock windage tray and studs? Should I just find 2 main cap bolts without the studs and replace or???? I can't imagine both windage trays would fit much else be ok.

    Just trying to figure out what the easiest solution is. I'd rather not switch out all main cap bolts with an arp set but if I have too have to.

    Thanks in advance. If anyone has some spare reg main cap bolts let me know is be willing to buy.

    Are you sure you only need two bolts? The small, stock tray normally uses 4 plus one in the oil pump (which you would not need to change).

    Barry, I think he means bolts for 2 main caps. Just a guess.

    Just take a cut off wheel and cut the tray part off.

    Yea it looks like it is just the two bolts that would be in the way for clearance issues.

    I was thinking cut the bolts or just use the stock tray and not the one in the pan. Just not sure which is better

    Just a caution about pan "packages"... I would strongly recommend using the stuff that came with the pan... By "stuff", I'm referring to the pan, windage tray, and pick up... There is very little in an engine that is as important as the oil "system", and normally I would suggest an aftermarket pump to go along with the aftermarket pan "stuff"... Your pump MAY be fine, but you really need to use the pick up that came with the pan because the depth is quite likely different than the stocker and the new pan MAY have the sump/baffles directing the oil to a different place.... IMO, the reason for the aftermarket pan is oil control, and of course additional volume. So, also IMO, use the complete "pan package" for the best results...AND, if you cut the tray studs off the existing bolts, don't get them too hot....

    PS if you need "stock" type main bolts w/o the studs, I have a few sets of stockers laying around that I'll give you, just pay shipping costs from 86440......OR, if you're coming to Needles for the show I'll bring them there and give them to you...
