60 Dodge pickup Build

Post by FenderBender on Wed Jan 21, 2015 2:37 pm

60 Dodge Pickup, 440, In the process of doing a frame swap to a 93 Dakota frame.  Had to shorten the frame 4", but dakota's have a nice factory seam to work with.

Rear Sump oil pan

Post by FenderBender on Fri Feb 20, 2015 8:28 pm

Kind of at a stand still until i can find a rear sump oil pan for a big block.  Mopar performance discontinued there P5249064.  Not a fan of the Milodon pans, but that seems to be the only thing out there, Anyone have one laying around??? Pan pickup and dipstick???

Can't put the rear end in until get the motor in!!  Cant determine if i need drop springs or spindles or both until i get engine weight on it, and it wont fit with a center sump pan.  And don't know how much to cut out of fire wall, and floor pan. #BIGBLOCKproplems!
