Stock Oil Pan for 496?

Hello mates,..quick question:

Will a stock oil pan fit a stroker crank (489 or 496)?..or do I need an aftermarket pan that's notched?

I'm gathering parts for another 69 and I have an LS-6 pan available if it will clear.

Thanks in advance!

My '75 P/U 454 motor that I used for my 496 core's pan fit my '67 car fine.

I also went to our Public Library and cross referenced it to double check and it is the same pan as the car pan too.

Thanks pdq67!

Did the pan rails on your block require much notching?...sounds like it didn't.

No, it swallowed my 496 rotating assembly with no grinding at all!

I did use truck rods so had to cam-cut my crank b/c I missed Lunati's tell me to use at least 1/4" longer custom rods to help balancing it but I don't think that matters.

I honestly think it would swallow a 4.375" crank with minimal grinding too after sticking a piece of bent "tie-wire" down it in several tight spots....

I did grind on my oil pump for nut clearance and I did grind new valve relief's in the top of each cylinder like it shoulda had before boring if it would have been a hi-po block.

Matched a headgasket outline and down about an 1/8th inch is all on both the intake and exhaust.
