    Yes you will need the #187 pan. The truck oil pan will not work.

    I ran into the same problem on a truck 440 once. Were the dipstick normally would go on the driver side of the engine the truck motors have a aluminum plug pressed into them and it's almost impossible to remove. What you got to do pull the pan off and find the hole on the bottom of the block were the oil tube would normally go get a long metal punch and smack it out it should pop out.

      Looks like a nice starting point. #187 pan comes up on here all the time in the forsale section. I got one with baffles,some have them some don't.

        Perfect fit in my Cuda. Looks like they chopped the bottom off and added 3 or 4 inches to the depth. It holds 7 quarts. Has the upper flat baffle welded in around the sumped area. It is a nice piece for the price. Clears the center link as well as all other steering components.

                  I've got a clean 187 pan here in Fresno. I'll take $75. I should have a pickup, too (will have to look).

                    I have a 1975 400 truck block and after it was bored/honed .060 over, the cylinders all sonic check at 95-100 thousands thickness. That #2 main web was huge, almost completely machined.
