    Default Modifying a Jet boat pan to fit a V-drive

    Since I have been unable to trade my B.B. oil pan for a small block pan It got me thinking. A new Dooley pen is $750. I found a jet boat pan with an asking price of $300. I have not purchased the pan nor have I seen it in person. I was wondering if I can flip around the oil trap door assembly and re-weld it inside the pan. I would need to purchase a new pick up also. I did call Dooley and asked them if this is possible. The tech I talked to said he only knew two people who have done this successfully. Sounds like a challenge to me. He said the oil pan is susceptible to cracking where it is welded. It doesn’t look like it would be that hard to do. Has anyone ever done this? The small block for the boat is not a permanent thing, just would like to get boat back in water and work out the bugs. I have all the SB marine hardware except the pan. Thanks in advance.

    Oil pans are Flipped all the time. Ask any Circle Boat Racer. The trick is the oil pickup and what the application is. Drags, Circles, Lake use, etc. Go for it.
    I don't know what I don't know because I forgot !!!

    I'd shop around a little more before buying a used one for 300 then hacking it. I had Armondos build my BBC pan last fall and with pickup it was 515 shipped. And its a nice pan! Just my .02.

    I might contact Kevco oil pans and see if they might make one for you. We have used their pans with success and would use them again in a heart beat. Their pans are very reasonably priced as well.

    If you've got fabrication skills, buy a standard performance 8" drag race pan from Summit or similar and fabricate the rest. Not much more work than what you're talking about and about half the cost of the jet boat pan you're looking at.
