swapping my 2.5 for a 350 crate, the oil pan has a slope to it and it keeps hitting the front crossmember, what if i get the 4x4 oil pan conversion?? will that work?? what other pan will work?? or should i get a stock pan and shim my motor mounts up?? i beat the crap out of my pan hoping to make it thin enough to wedge in but no dough, thanks for any help

the motor is sitting to low, that area of the pan should
clear without a problem, what motor mount combination
or conversion are you using?

The short side of the the pan that slops back should no be
beat on , this is clearance for the crank.

i got the 2.8 frame mounts and Roch manufacturing adapter mounts (ebay), it does sit pretty low, i got maybe an inch to move it back more, just gotta beat the firewall a little more, the oil pan that came on it would of been impossible to put on, it was sloped like 45 degree angle to the sump, anyone got any pics of their oil pan and crossmembers??

Thanks
