Stock oil pan with 4 bolt main caps

  1. Anyone tried this?
    Am starting a project that will utilize an aftermarket block (either World Products Man-O-War or Dart).
    The question I have is will a stock pan fit with 4 bolt mains at all 5 positions?
  2. I have done it for a fox body,a lot of heating and beating is needed, this was a DART Iron Eagle. The only reason we did it is my customer wanted the stock appearing look, even painted the alum heads.

    The Man-O-War will need even more work to make the caps and studs fit, they are larger. If you go Man-O-War make sure you plug the extra head bolt holes with threaded plugs and sealer, I have had 2 of them seap water through porosity.

    Between the aftermarket blocks DART gets my business. If you need any parts or the motor build give me chance. :nice:
