im building an oil pan for 306. i copyed all the dimensions from a miloden 8 quart front sump oil pan. its only roughed in at this point, i have a lot of work in making it leak resistant. it still needs all the finishing stitches. this only took 2 hours so far.

well its 16 guage (1/16") mild steel. i use my hobart mig welder. all i did was use milodens dimensions of there sbf pans and copyed it. very easy to do if you know how to mig/stick weld or you could probably use an acetoline torch set.

I made my pan too. It didn't cost me anything. I used sheet metal from work and tig welded it. It fits great and works great. I also get the feeling of accomplishment when I do my own parts.
I love tight wads.

And then there are some who CAN build a pan or a set of headers,windage tray,intake manifold etc.Makes me glad to see that there are some god ole fashioned hot rodders out there,not just checkbook rodders.To those who don't have the time,experience or inclination hey we're still ford freaks any way you cut it...If I've offended anyone appologies in advance,but us old guys still delight in doing some things the hard way........Jay

That's pretty cool dude!! Did you copy the inside of the Milodon pan too?

You've got an order from me if you can make me a low-buck one just like that. I could supply the oil pan too. Just a friendly offer if you're interested.

should hold 8 quarts, it is a clone of milodens sbf front sump pan and theirs holds 8 quarts. im gonna make my own extended pick up but i might use oxy acsetoline tank to weld it to prevent excessive slag inside pick up tube. i do fabrication for a living so i am able to get good prices on metal through work if i want.

I like it!! It's just like the one I use. When I put 7 qts in it, the oil comes to the bottom of the "safe" zone on the stock stick. Make sure you add the baffles and trap door and have a pickup that sits close to the bottom so you can take full advatage it.

Hey James, any further progress on this? I'm still interested in ordering a copy from you. Is the inside of the pan similar to Milodon's with the baffles?
