Oil Pan BBC - w/ Stroker?

I want to get a inexpensive oailpan that will work with a 69 Camaro with a BBC and stroker crank. Im guessing I cant use my old stock oilpan. I dont really want to drop $240 for a oilpan after all Ive spent already.

Re: Oil Pan BBC - w/ Stroker?

Depends upon how long the stroke is. If the crank eats into the oil pan rails you will need a special pan and an external oil feed kit for a Mark IV block, or at least a special pan for a Gen V or Gen VI block. The oil pan would be the least of your worries, cam interference, and counter weight to piston skirt also come to mind.

Re: Oil Pan BBC - w/ Stroker?

Let me add some info if that helps.

This is a 1974 CE 454 .030 over and stroked to 486-489CID using a Eagle Rotating Assembly.

I guess Im going to get a stock style Moroso replacement and just modify it. Its only a 1/4" additional stroke.

Re: Oil Pan BBC - w/ Stroker?

The oil pan is the only non moving part that if not correct for the application can completely destroy an engine. Don't scrimp on an oil pan, who wants a $10K engine destroyed by a $69 part.

Re: Oil Pan BBC - w/ Stroker?

Have you tried your stock pan? My son and I just assembled his 496. Crank clears fine. I think that's a half inch stroker in a 454 (.060 over). Right guys?
