    I've got a 5 qt. front sump "car" pan on my 460, and while it is not the optimum or preferred setup by any means, I have not had any problems with it. Been running it that way for going on 5 seasons now.

    I did buy a 10 qt. Dooley jetboat pan over the winter, just haven't gotten around to pulling the engine to swap pans yet.

    You guys with the 5qt pans and front pick-up are living on the edge. Its just a mater of time and it could cost you big bucks. When you get on it, the oil is in the back of the pan and on top of the motor. Good luck!!!

    Like I said, good luck with the 5qt pan in a jet boat. Some need to find out the hard way like I did.

    That would help but the main problem is the oil pick-up is in the front. When I rebuilt that engine that spun barrings and bent rods, I welded up my own 10qt pan out of the old 5qt pan. I then bought a rear oil pick-up from Dooleys. Still have that engine and runs strong. New motor has a new 10qt Dooleys pan.
