I'm about ready to reinstall my oil pan and can't seem to recall if these engines have rails for the oil pan.

If they do, where the hell did I leave them in my garage?! :p

I'm a 5.0 guy by nature, so forgive me. On the 5.0 there are two rails that are fitted on the outside of the pan to help disperce the securing load placed on the oil pan. Basically, imagine it like a very unique washer.

No, no rails on the aluminum oil pan.
