hey, i have a ? for you guys

we are trying to put a late model 351 windsor engine in a 67' fairlane(me and my father). the v8 pan from the fairlane will not fit the windsor due to the fact that the rear-main bearing cap is physicall larger than on the 302 engine we removed.Also all the bolt holes line up except for the two adjacent to the rear - main bearing cap. the windsor engine has a 1 piece rear main seal,(1984 model, i believe the engine is) any help would be greatly appreciated.

- thanks

-mac

Went through all this when I was going to fit 351.Sump and front assembly fittment issues. I think you need a 351 sump.Try a bigger one after market or modified one ??..

Yep 351w sumps are completely different to 289/302.
Just buy a High energy winged sump for a 351w. The stock oil capacity is hopeless anyway.
Check the link at the bottom of my website about my EFI 351w into '66 XR. You may find it interesting.

thanks for the great info, however... were looking to go the low- budget route. is there not a stock pan that will fit? engine were putting in is bone stock, with aluminum intake and a small 4- barrel carb. 250- 400 bucks seems a bit steep for our shoestring buildup.there's gotta be a stock pan out there somewhere that will fit. come on folks , put your thinking caps on. :)

thanks in advance
-mac and chuck

Well ok, any XW/ZC 351W oil pan will do. Not very common at wreckers though. Go to a parts importer and get a front sump 351W oil pan.
