Hello Guys and Gals, Does anyone know of a company that makes a oil pan to fit a 351w in a mustang II body? and if so, do the offer a drag race pan? Any help out there?
Thanks a lot,
Rob

Not that I've ever seen. If you use a manual rack a standard "front sump" pan will be close but fit. You will have to rework the rear of the pan if you are using the stock II bell housing. If you use a 15x tooth bell you will have no problems except with headers. If you have power steering you might have to "massage" the radius of the curve to the sump as it will be very close or rub the rack depending on the condition of you motor mounts. It doesn't take much to make it fit.

Here is a factory pan with a power rack.

Hello again, I'm using a manual rack, motor mounts will be a front and mid plate (the car is for drag racing only). The headers will be fender exit. My concern was the oil pan to rack / crossmember area. I could raise the engine a small amount with the use of the motor plates. I just fitted my wheel tubs to the rear of the car today and hope to have a rolling chassis by this fall. Thanks guys,
Rob
