    Anyone use the Milodon deep pan 31010 in the 73 A-body with a Big block? How far dose it hang down below the K member? Says it has a 7 3/4 deep sump. Ok for street?

    Not a fan of the milodon pan. Mine leak from new. I had to cut my K frame. I understand I had to bang around on it to make the high volume oil pump fit. this was a small block 73 duster so I'm sure it was a different pan but still wasn't impressed. My headers go down further than the pan so that would be the first thing that hit.

    I'd take a look at the milodon road race pan. That one you are looking at it pretty low.

    Thanks R Dart, I already have it with bunch of other stuff I got with the project. I might mock everything up with it. The Road race pan looks nice but $$ is the object. The Hemi pan might be an option, got one on my B-body and am happy with it. Dont know if it will fit the A-body though. Sold one of the C-body pans with the notch last year not thinking I would ever need it. DOH!

    When that pan you have makes friends with the ground and dumps all the oil under the car. Remember me. :)

    Here is mine in a 71 Duster, QA1 K frame. Was sitting mighty low, going to bring the car up a bit before putting her on the road.

      Wow... that wouldn't work on the roads around here! It'd have a hole within a mile.

      I have the Milodon 30930 (is that the one in the pic?) and it sticks out a couple inches below the stock K-frame. Still makes me nervous, thinking of a skid plate...

        To be honest I’m not sure of the # it came in pile of parts I bought a few years back. I’ll see if I can figure nd it when I get home tonight. All I do know is it fit the 440,K frame, holds 7qts and is certainly DEEP!

        Looks like the pan, pickup and windage tray will be up for sale. Form the pic mom's duster posted it's a no go for me.

            Waint until you see what 8 quarts looks like on the ground. You'd think it was 5 gallons.

            The one I have is the 31010, looking at the Milodon cataloge its 3/4 of an inch deeper than the 30930 that has kind of a kick out. Mine is a square sump. Its is a no go for Me.

            lol , reminds me of the time back before I started being real serious w/ my first hemi. I lived a few blocks from a guy I worked with, while turning the corner in front of his house, I nailed the belvedere after I got it straightened up, the front end came up and when I let off of it , the deep pan I had made crashed the pavement, it was exactly 1 mile to the block from my mothers house ,"where my jack was", I shut the engine off and coasted all the way, even thru the 11th street traffic light , and around two corners, and stopped about 30 ft from her house. Oil streamed all the way , ran completely out before I got there. .

              Set the front ride height up a little, throw a set of adjustable shocks on up front and turn up the compression.

              You want the Milodon #31580 road race style pan. It holds 7 quarts and gives stock style clearance.
              This fits B/RB and Gen II Hemis (just a different pickup for the Hemis). These pans clear stock and most
              tubular K-frames as well as TTi headers. They have trap doors that keep the oil supply at the ready. HDK
              uses a lot of these and I know that HemiDenny's silver Duster as well as the Hemi Demons of HemiMark
              and 62BT409 are currently running them with great results.

                Better be sitting down when you look at the price though... $448.95 at Summit and that doesn't even include the oil pickup!

                I wonder if it will clear my Dart's 78030 B-body headers though. Will have to look (and start saving my pocket change)...

                Bitchen pan with a no so bitchen price. Might just mockup with what I have then break out the Sawsall and welder and make my own.

                  The 402 is a stock B-Body I think. The Hemi 6 qt pan is dirt cheap and I can hack on that if need be. Better than butchering the $250+ Milodon one I have. I am a bit out to start mocking this stuff up so all recipes you folks have are more than welcome. New to A-body BB conversions as you can probably tell. Awesome site and thanks.

                  Personally, I do not like center sump . No way the widened pan would fit with my headers anyway.

                  The road race pan is trap door baffled. t's a work of art.

                  OK so it does corners (which my Dart doesn't) ;)
                  Is it also baffled to keep the oil under the pickup when launching hard?
