Flipper, here's one more worry for you. If you find a real nice shallow oil pan, that leaves the dust shield around the flywheel/ring gear, sticking down quite low and exposed.

There is a second jag engine and trans. It is a 1954 model and does not have the overdrive....just a normal 4 speed.

OK. Just yanking your chain anyway Flipper.

I saw a Stude just like that with stock front suspension and a SBC, is the Jag crossmember taller?

This studebaker had been *******ized by a previous owner (maybe multiple owners). Going jag got me modern geometry, rack and pinion that was made for the suspension, and pretty good brakes in one neat package.

However, that neat package is rear steer.

Original Stude was a weird setup with a drag link up to a bell crank to which the tie rods were hooked, also rear steer. Jag would be an improvement for sure.

Putting a 5.3 in my studebaker...originally was going to use the corvette pan but it’s super pricey even for a used one, fbody pan is way cheaper and only an inch difference from the vette pan....this pic is just the motor sitting in place with the truck pan still on, it’ll be a few inches lower

When I put the LS3 in my Chevelle in '09... the oil pan was a problem too & at that time there weren't many options. Finally had to spring for one that cost $650. About a year later they were down to less than $400. I feel your pain!
