Re: Will a 7 qt oil pan fit into a 68 camaro

7 qt pans fit no problem. The additional oil is a good thing to have @ high rpm so you don't starve the lower end for oil when a majority of the oil gets pumped to the top end.

Sometimes it's better to let someone think your an idiot, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt...

Re: Will a 7 qt oil pan fit into a 68 camaro

What I used http://www.champpans.com/index.cfm?e...ctdetail&id=83

What I did like most about this pan was the removable windge tray, mounted in the pan. This makes it easier to R&R with motor in car, without pan hanging on windge tray studs .


Use the one piece pan gasket . Save yourself some trouble.

Re: Will a 7 qt oil pan fit into a 68 camaro

Jay, The ebay pan Looks OK, But be aware that sometimes cheap pans dont fit the block that great, they are usually a little warped from welding and I have found lots of slag inside the pan, and the bolt holes sometimes need to be drilled 1 size over. You sometimes have to rolox disc out the welding slag in the pan and then steam the heck out of it.
It is very hard to get this style of pan off in the car especially if you have headers.
Pretty reasonable price. Make sure you tig weld the pickup into the pump body. JMO.

I also use the champ pan. It's a great peice, American made in Wisconsin, too. Rather than ordering on the web, call them. Make sure you get the right pickup for the pump you will use. I used the 10555, the so-called "big block pump for a small block." and it took 2 tries to get the right pickup.

Their pictures do not do it justice. These are 100% fabricated from new heavy gauge steel. They do not look like those others which look like someone sawed the bottom off a (chinese) stock pan and welded a sump onto it.

The pan you reference says "will not fit rear steer chevelle" I dont remember rear steer
Chevells, but old Camaros are. Check carefully.

CV Products CV1080LTRR. Great fitting pan that will work well for street, strip, and road course. It's made by Champ.

Re: Will a 7 qt oil pan fit into a 68 camaro

Regardless of brand, I suggest to get the pan having the drain plug on the side rather than the rear. No interference.

Any pan not lower than 8 1/4 inches will be protected by the crossmember.
Be sure the headers, at least the driver side, is on first, or install the header first hanging it by the hood hinge, or you will have to lift up the engine and swing it over to the pass side to install the drvr header. Some side expanded pans give limited room for installing headers. Those pans the same block width don't have too much of a problem.
