    If you can't afford $600 for a V drive pan, either search for a good used one (probably in the $250 range or so), or wait until you can afford the proper pan.

    Do not try to "get away" with something that is not right, it likely will cost you a bunch more money in broken engine parts.

    Give Kevko a call.

    Tell them what you have and what you want.

    Tons of used ones out there. You don't need a 600 pan... You may want one... but you don't need it.

    Is "Armando" still in business? He makes a nice, cheap pan... Very good piece. I have one. It ain't 600 bucks... but it keeps the oil in my BA 8.0 PE piece. It has a few hundred passes on it, no rebuild yet... so must have oil in it somewhere.

    My Armando pan is the first fabricated pan I owned that was absolutely leak free from day one.

    I just spoke with Armondo on Friday about building a V-Drive pan. I have to do some measuring first before I can order it.

    As far as pans go I ran my first boat (66 Stevens) for years with a stock pan. I had no clue what a V-Drive pan even was. I never ever had a problem. Turned a 396 6k rpm,s every weekend. I wouldn't do it now because I know better but It worked just fine.
