Oil pan for zz427 in 68

I am putting a zz427 in my 68. it had a396 in it. the drag link rubs the pan when turning. other wise there is about 1/8 clearance. does any one have part numbers for pans that work? I would like to retain oil capacity , 6 qts.
Thanks

Re: Oil pan for zz427 in 68

we put the engine in with the pan it came with, to check the fitment of headers, will the gen IV oil pan fit the zz427?

You will need a 1 pc rear seal pan. B&B has one that fits.

Re: Oil pan for zz427 in 68

is it an option to just clearance the oil pan a bit to clear the linkage with a chunk of pipe and a heavy ball peen Ford tool?

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?

Re: Oil pan for zz427 in 68

Can you simply raise the motor a 1/4" or so to clear?

Re: Oil pan for zz427 in 68

That sounds like the correct part no. I ordered for my 69, but I will have to check. I ordered mine from Summit Racing and got the pickup tube with it. I believe it is a GM part as well. I will try to check this.

Re: Oil pan for zz427 in 68

Well, unfortunately I am undergoing a major remodel in my home and I cannot find anything pertinent to what I am interested in....

Can someone else help out with a part no. for the correct fitting oil pan?

Sorry to let you down...

Re: Oil pan for zz427 in 68

I used a Milodon #30975. It requires pickup and I would recommend buying windage tray. Windage tray free's up 8-10hp.

Call Milodon tech. They are very helpful. I got everything thru Jegs or Summit. Cant recall now.

Dropped a 496 in a 67 Chevelle few months ago using Milodon pan and had to use a Moroso shim kit for pan clearance. Shims might work for your application.

I'm very interested in this thread also as I am getting ready to set a ZZ427 in my 69 Camaro.

Re: Oil pan for zz427 in 68

Muscle Car is doing a NOPO to COPO show and putting the anniversary 427 in a 69.the engines are basically the same. you might want to watch it .

I am going to replace the idler and pitman arms with 5 3/4 ones. this may give me 1/2 inch clearance off the pan front. if that doesn't work I guess I'll have to pull the pan.

Re: Oil pan for zz427 in 68

Rally Sport, Jeg's carries this pan as a kit that comes with 4 main cap bolts. Did you need to replace anything besides the gasket , pan, pick up and dip stick? 12495360 is listed as a 4 qt are you counting the filter oil for 5? Thanks .Bill

Re: Oil pan for zz427 in 68

Just found the receipt for my oil pan I installed. Same Summit part no. Fits perfect, no clearance issues.
