    You might be the first member from El Paso. Not a lot of boatable water around there as I recall. Where will you run it at, Elephant Butte?

    Yeah, its only a 2 hour drive. we usually go up sat and spend the night and leave late sunday, that makes it worth the drive, plus i have 2 jet skis a bayliner and now this project so it'll be worth it to be up there with so many toys better than just up there with one hahaha!

    In my mind its a big lake even though everyone says its tiny hahah

    Thank you! I've got a question, It came with a pretty damn big oil pan but i can't say exactly how big. its definitely not one of those big 10 qt ones but its bigger than a car one. Is it okay to run these boats with the smaller pans or its basically taboo to do so?
    Thanks

    Hey Neat.....welcome. I've got a 460 BBF dual point dizzy I'm pulling from my motor this weekend. It works fine, just replacing it with an MSD. If you want it you can have it for shipping.

    Yeah, that's not bad. Heck I've got a lake 40 minutes away and I make a 2 hour drive to the Colorado River just about every weekend. It's well worth the trip.

    You should be fine. I ran a automotive type pan on my old stock 460 BBF motor for years. The boat and motor were old when I got em so who knows how long that motor lived with the original pan. A bigger pan would be a good upgrade at some point, but not necessary in my humble opinion. Might want to make it a practice to keep a close eye on oil level, and maybe change it a little more often.

    I didn't go to a bigger pan until a rebuild and some added horsepower.

    That question would be better left to the engine guys.

    Just as an opinion and again from when my motor was bone stock with the stock pan, I was still running the original oil pump too.

    When it was rebuilt with more horsepower it got a HV pump and a 10 qt pan.

    My only concern would be that the HV pump could empty that small stock pan on a long extended run. Pump all the oil up top and starve the bearings.

    You might want to ask people who know motors.

    Yeah i had the same concern, a similar thing happened on my old Tahiti. Maybe i can find a 10qt pan somewhere cheap. The pan i have with it is already oversized i believe because i have the 460 in a truck and the pan isn't nearly this big.

    If you're gonna buy a big pan try to find one with a rear pickup. Needs to be a jet pan too. The V-drive pans are different. Pick up is reversed and I think they're deeper in the back vs. front. Even when you get the right pan, it makes for a tight fit. I had to trim off my intake bolts to get it to fit and it was still tight clearance-wise.

    lol i had a truck with a dana 60 front end that wasn't stock and i had to take a hammer to the oil pan to help make it fit a little bit haha redneck engineering right there.

    we'll see if i even find one. My budget is somewhat limited.
