    Default 77' Spectra & Oil Pan clearance

    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.

    Thanks in advance!!

    I believe from past post of problems with that pan on marine use. They mention someone else who builds one. I don't remember I am sure someone will chime here and pass on the info.

    Default Oil Pans

    Some people have good luck with the Milodon pans but I have also heard bad things (Like loosing oil pressure when you need it the most). I bought one of these pans for my 532 Ford.(http://www.geocities.com/motorcity/flats/1624/

    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)

    I was going to go that route when I do the stroker. Is it working out well for you?
