Putting one of my OLD cars back on the track,
and obviously they probably have a much better pan than I used 20 years ago!!

Basic 454", wet sump, going in one of my 2nd Gen Camaro's.
If I was to guess, it had a basic 6 qt Moroso back then.
All stock subframe, front & back plates with custom headers, stock manual steering.

What do you Guys use now a days!!

Low 9's, no N2O, no boost.

21047, and 21049 are basically the same pan, but the 049 has a 3/4" longer sump front to back. Which ever one fits your chassis. You may have to notch the top of the cross member, more so if running a diaper.

Thanks Guys. I'll check on those.

Car is an original RS, so it's not being notched ever for any reason.

On my 70 Chevelle it fits, and did not need notching, but I did on mine for more room. Everything is about 1/4" all around. the tie rod ends did/do just touch the pan, and I took off the zerk fittings. I will find out later if anything else needs to be done.

I have a Jeff Johnson pan with the kickout. It is the nicest pan I have ever had. Lots of guys rave about Moroso and Stefs, but I hate the way those two manufacture their pan rails with 2 layers of 1/8" instead of a single 1/4" piece like JJ Billet Fab and Williams do. Williams and Billet Fab gets my vote.

BTW-I have Lemons 2-3/8" x 4-1/2" headers and the pan fits without any notching anywhere.

Johnson was closed, I called too late, I'll call from the field tomorrow.

I searched moroso and they don't have the pan I used any more.
It was a double kick out with no dip stick hole.
At least I didn't see it??

I'll call Canton also, they have one that looks like my old moroso, but it has a hole, that I can just weld up.

Thanks again Guys.

The Milodon 31188 has always been great for me. Used it on quite a few 540-555's-582's and a 632. I spin 8000+ and no issues.

I have always had good service and excellent quality using Milodon oil pans.

WOW, that is a good deal.
Won't be using the chutes, I joined a series that only races 1/8 mile :(
So hopefully I have zero oiling issues with a decent interior wet sump, instead of the belt drive I used last time.
