Source for stock oil pan

I'm looking for a new stock oil pan for the '69. It doesn't have to be correct but does need to be good quality. Summit list one for $23.95 (plain steel) which sounds like a cheapie and Rick's lists one for $124.00 for an GM original. Advance list cheapies also and like Summit only the specialty ones seem to be priced to at least make you think they are of better quality. So, are the cheapies good quality but just cheap because they're mass produced or will I really have to spend over $100.00 for something decent.

Robert watch out for the pans that are 23.00 dollars alot of those pans have no baffels like the orgianls or the ones for 100.00 bucks.

Re: Source for stock oil pan

I've used the Milodon part # 30700 stock replacement with good success, it fits well and the steel seems to be thicker than the cheapy $20.00-$30.00 pans. Milodon also offers a HP version that looks stock on the outside, but has a built-in windage tray and baffle. Part #31503

Re: Source for stock oil pan

Thanks for the replies.

I looked right past the 30700. When I saw the gold color I thought it was a specialty piece, never thought it would be stock but it said so plain as day. I'll give it a try.

Re: Source for stock oil pan

Why not look & buy a Z/28 6-qt pan from the dealer? Still available and holds an extra qt of oil.

Re: Source for stock oil pan

Thanks for the suggestion but I ordered the Milodon this morning. If the Z/28 pan is much pan deeper I'd be worried anyway as the car sits real low with the Hotchkis. If the pan gets much closer to the ground I may need a skid plate. lol

Re: Source for stock oil pan

Both the stock pan and the Z-28 version are available at your Chevy dealer,..the stocker is about $90. I'd use one of these.

I've used others,..one that didn't have the correct radius at the back and didn't fit around the gasket correctly, and leaked,..only I initially blamed the rear main seal,..spent a weekend replacing it, buttoned it all up only to learn later the after-market pan was the culpret. That was my lesson learned.

Also, some of the Moroso and Milodon "stock" pans or "claimer" pans have weird baffles that requires oil pick-ups that are meant for roundy-rounders (it's off-set to the passenger's side). I guess it would be ok,..but be aware that your stock PU may not work.

If ever in doubt, go GM,..you're seldom disappointed.
