    Default Oil Pans

    Whats the best oil pan for a conservative NA 825HP motor? My current dooley pan has a small dipstick and when I mash the gas the dipstick is vibrating out and crating a nice little mess in the bilge. I'm thinking stefs but just wanted to get some opinions.

    Has anyone purchased one of the new Keith Eickert aluminum Pans?

    Manton made a really cool pan I saw once for a Donovan BBC, it had a removable base like the BAE pans so you could leave the billet rail bolted up and still pull the lower half and check bearings, etc.

    I partial to Stef's. Contact REX marine as they are a stock marine pan dealer for Stef's now. No waiting 6 weeks for one of our pans, REX has them on the shelf.

    Can you or do you guys make a pan like I'm speaking of for BBC's? Sheet metal alum split pan? It's a pain to have to remove the front cover and everything just to roll new bearings.
