View Full Version : Front sump oil pan?

Hey everybody!

I'm in the planning stages of swapping my '89 SC engine and trans into my '69 Mustang and I need to know if anyone knows of a front-sump oilpan that will fit the 3.8? I've seen some stuff on the web that seems to say that the 3.8 and 4.2 engines (apparently the 4.2 is a later evolution of the 3.8) might share oilpans. I also saw an oilpan catalog that showed the same oilpan fitting both the 4.2 and a 5.0 V8. Anybody know if these engines might all actually share the same oilpan size and bolt pattern? Obviously I'll also need to reconfigure the pump pickup, and I don't remember if that will be as easy as just building a short pickup or not. Any tips?
