Which oil pan?
 
Seriously thinking about pulling the 5.3 out of my stalled fargo project and sticking it in the studebaker. What is currently "the" cheap oil pan to buy for better clearance?

The pans on the truck engines is like the SBC with the sump in the rear.

....but it hangs way down. With the studebaker hood being so low, the motor is going to have to sit low in the chassis. I think I will need more ground clearance.

GM Muscle car pan is $200. Holley 302-1 looks like it has more clearance but it is $389. Any other options?

Gm musclecar pan is only 3/4" shallower than a normal truck pan?

looks like you need a F-body pan (Camaro-Fbird)

I don't know that the camaro pan will clear the jag rear rack and pinion.

I guess I will try and mock it up this weekend as is and see how bad the truck pan sucks.

Later model truck pans are an inch shorter than the early ones. You would need an 08 + truck pan. F body is the shallowest on the rear sump but the sump is long front to back. The holley pan is slightly longer height wise and shorter lengthwise. CTS-V is thinner at the front then an F body but is slightly deeper at the back. Could just get an 01-07 truck pan and cut it to fit. That has been done as well.

But why is the Fargo stalled? [S
