Username Post: Who makes a new oil pan to fit a '57 with 350?        (Topic#5698)

11-25-01 08:25 PM - Post#41195    

I have a 350 in my '57 that's sitting in the stock location. The oil pan now in the car is a cheapy chrome unit that likes to leak out the front. The metal was kinked in the rounded area when the pan was made. I'd like to replace the pan with a new painted steel one but don't know which pan to buy. I see them advertised to fit small blocks from 55-79 but have a feeling these may hit my steering components. Help! Which one do I get? Thanks!

This was discussed a while back, maybe there was a part number there, there were some applications.

You need something with about 8" for a horizontal length on the rear sump.

NAPA has started handling some new oil pans. Don't know if they have one specifically for tri-fives but I am sure some of the later pans will work. You may want to try a thicker and little wider front seal on your pan. I have had some success with them. take care
