what oil pan to use?

Postby vegajohncosworth » Fri Dec 22, 2017 11:08 pm

can anyone here recommend a proper engine oil pan to use with a stock '75 vega chassis and mark iv big block installation? using a motor mount kit from bob gumm and the hooker headers, turbo hydramatic 400 a/t. i have heard a stock replacement oil pan for a 1969 camaro will work. anyone have actual experience with this? thanks.

I used a deep Moroso pan for a big block Chevy II, partly because I found a deal on a used one and because I wanted a deeper pan.

WiseguyRC did a big block Vega wagon, maybe he will chme in with what he used.

Moroso makes their own pickup tubes for each depth with a welded retention tab.
Or they offer pumps with the pickup tube brazed in from the factory.
