Builders’ Tip: The front sump on SB Ford oil pans will sometimes interfere with the Mustang II front crossmember. It may be necessary to do one or both of the following:
1) notch the Mustang II crossmember as required, or
2) use the pan from an ’87-’94 Ford pick-up (#FITZ-6675-A). Be sure to get the correct oil pump pick-up tube. This pan is for motors with the dipstick in the block.
Thanks to Dan Lecelle (Vern Hornby’s nephew) for this tip.
