Hey guys, Im wanting to use a larger pan. Its a BBF460 in a 77, 18' spectra. Link below to the pan Im looking/considering. The pan that came with the setup is a regular shaped pan. Im not sure if this thing will clear the cradle-eng mount that runs between the stringers.
Maybe someone else has used this pan on the same boat/eng combo??
OR...Is there a known better pan option someone is using already besides this one?? Im very open to suggestions.
I havent had a chance to test it yet as I havent started the engine yet but, I have heard good things about them. The only thing I dont like so far is the cadmium plating finish. It arrived with thin dull spots all over it.
Please check your Pms for info on our pan per your request Tom
Max pan debth in my experience is 7 3/4 from engine pan rail to the lowest part of the sump at the rear this goes for BBC and BBF as well 8" will barely allow proper drive line alignment and jet intake bolt clearance with a standard length D/L Berkely set up .and even then we countersink to two forward bolts Your obstacle is your under pan saddle/ 3 point mount , I would consider modifying your front mont to allow for a Box style pan or remounting the motor with a 4 point or rail kit Tom
front bolts C/sunk (not trimmed)
