I've got a 69 Camaro SS 350 and am converting to a BBC; a ZL1 crate which comes with (GM Part # 10240721) which is described in the GM Performance Parts catalog as: "Six-quart pan fits all 1991-and-newer Gen V and Gen VI, 427, 454, 502 and 572 engines"

The only other listing in the catalog for earlier models is #14091356 described as a Corvette oil pan 1965-74.

Does anyone know for sure if the supplied pan will fit; I really don't want to drop it in to have to pull it back out again if it don't work.

Thanks in advance for all the informed replies.

Regards,

Bob

That's a little confusing considering the ZL-1 block is still a Gen IV. At least mine is and it is the modern GMPP block. I know the 502 pan doesn't fit in a camaro.

If you have the Anniversary ZL-1, that is a 1-piece rear seal. Call Scroggins-Dickey Chevrolet, they are a Performance Parts Dealer and ask what pan you need

The Corvette pan won't fit,..not even close.

I would run this pan from Moroso:

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/MOR-20403/

It has a windage screen, scraper, trap door, and baffling, all conducive to HP. It holds 6 qts., has ample ground clearance, clears a stroker crank, and fits the Camaro chassis perfectly.

If you're wanting a more stock appearing pan (with muuuch less oil control) you may be stuck using 396/427 pan which is still available at your Chevy parts counter. Of course it will only take a 3.75" stroke.

There is a GM Performance pan that will work, 14103141, but it's simply a rebranded (and more expensive) Moroso pan.

Good luck!

Thanks a lot for the info; ordered the pan today.

BTW; anyone know what's the best fastener for pans (what's the best fastener period) for aluminum blocks?

Are different fasteners required for similar/dissimilar metals such as aluminum to aluminun, cast to aluminum, carbon steel to aluminum etc. Some of the fastener options would be: black painted, chrome plated, cermic coated, alloy i.e. 316SS?

Sorry for the late reply, I don't have a chance to check the site as often I would like. I bought mine from Pace Performance part # 12495360

"This 4-quart oil pan kit is for all 1991 and later Gen V and Gen VI 454 and 502ci engines. This pan should fit most early model Chevelle and Camaro vehicles. The kit includes the 4-quart oil pan, four main cap bolts P/N 10106461, oil pump screen P/N 3955281, oil level tube P/N 329231, oil level gauge P/N 3989391, and oil pan gasket P/N 10106407. Technical Note: Oil pan is not serviced separately."

by the way the six quart oil pan would have hit your steering linkage, I learned that the hard way, I used the original fasteners that came with the engine. Mine has been in for about two years now with no problems. Good luck with your install.

I like to use anti-seize on anything with aluminum threads. Permatex makes a good product, sold at your local parts counter.

Thanks for the advice and assistance gents:

Kent, are you referring to the 6 qt pan that comes on the ZL1 or the 6 qt pan mentioned above by Straight-Line-69, part # 14103141.

BTW, what headers did you end up installing; I've just tried Hooker 2457-1HKR for BBC Chevy's and the bottom flange interferes with the head studs/nuts.

Thanks again and Regards,

Bob

Yes, I was referring to the 6 qt pan that came with the engine. I used those same headers you mentioned to break the engine in, I had to do a lot of grinding on the bottom flange and dimpled the driver side to clear my steering box, I recently bought and installed a set of lemon header, pricey but love them. Good Luck.

The Moroso pan linked is for two piece seal block. The pan your block comes with is for a one piece seal block. Don't see how the Moroso will work.


I'd look at what Milodon offers. They're good about checking. You want one for a Gen V or VI block.

That is clearly a one piece pan. Something doesn't add up if he's using the new block but he said it was a crate engine.

Like OakleySS posted, the anniversary ZL1 uses a one piece seal crank. It also comes modified for OEM roller cam.

Kent apparently has the anniversary crate because the part number for the pan he said he is using is a one piece.

I don't think the anniversary crate uses the new block. I thought they destroyed the tooling after the anniversary crates were built and the new block just says "based off original tooling".

Yeah, it's the Anniversary Crate; waited for a while but now it's finally in the garage. Next step, get in the car...

Thanks again for the help!

UPDATE - Correct oil pan for 69 Camaro SS w/BBC 427

The saga continues; turns out pan 14103141 (from GMPP catalog) and mentioned above does "not" fit as i have just finished physical comparison; if you look closely at the photos on the page (257 in my catalog) 14103141 has a wider front flange and lesser dish on the rear flange.

It has been suggested that part 12495360 - the 4 quart pan is the one I need!

Also turns out 14103141 is discontined i.e. I can't exchange it, anyone that wants one let me know; I guess since it's discontinued it means that it has become rare therefore should be worth a mint! (Here's hoping...ha!)

Regards
