    What oil pans will work in the early a-body's? I am planning to swap in a 360 in my '65 Valiant. I am assuming any stock 360 pan should fit. What about aftermarket pans like Milodon or Moroso? I would like a bit more capacity, but don't really want to lose ground clearance. I've seen some pictures online of people running custom oil pans as well (Charlie's?) but no clue if those are a standard part or not.

    Maybe one of you knows?

    A stock center sump pan will work, I used a Milodon p/n 30755 in my 66. Charlie's=$$ so whatever you want to spend.

    The Milodon is better then the Moroso. Its not as low but you may need to notch the K frame a bit.

    I've used a stock 340 pan, and a 360 pan on my 65 Cuda and neither of those had any problems. I have included some dimensions. Hope it shows up ok

    Did you have to do any clearance work on the K-frame at all?


    Those dimensions are great! Thanks! :thumbup:

    I had an old moroso pan on an engine I bought. It was really low, and leaked at the sump weld. The roads hear are really bad in some spots, so ground clearance is pretty important. I'll look into the Milodon setup.
