    Well its not really a project thread yet as much as it is a bunch of questions, really from reading the thread so far he doesn't even own the truck yet. When he buys the truck and he starts his project he can start a project thread for it and it will be moved to the proper forum if posted in the wrong place.
    If your truck is 2wd a stock sbc oilpan will work but trust me chrome oilpans are junk, I have pulled my motor 3 times to make it stop leaking. The 3rd time I finally junked it and amazing no more leaks. Not only the leaks they keep the oil hotter than a stock pan does. If your truck is a 4x4 get ready to spend big bucks for a pan or build your own.

    the stock pan should work just fine. unless you want to spend more money. O yeh, get ready to spend some money! It's amazing how those $1 to $5 purchases add up. Your engine should be inexpensive to put in.

    the PO to the PO installed the v8... I'm contemplating pulling the engine just to make sure everything is done properly and safely... my chrome pan is actually a stock pan that has been chromed. thanks for the info about the 4x4 pan luckily mine is 2wd...if and when this becomes my project build by all means move it to wherever it needs to be, i just hope I'll be able to find it after its been moved :bowdown: :blazer:

    If you don't grind the chrome off the gasket mating surface I garentee it will leak. Been there done that. I also used the stock rail stiffeners it didn't matter with leaks and 1/4" or stock won't make a difference you can only tighten the bolts so much.

    i'll definitely grind the rails and probably put a bead of silicone on the block and pan let it set up for a few hours then still use a high quality gasket. i plan on replacing most of the bolts with studs

    goto photobucket.com and create an account... then just upload the pics onto there, then once uploaded, itll give you 4 links on the left hand side. you want the very last one.

    itll be like: [IMG] then the link of the picture you wanna post [/IMG]

    just copy and past that link into the thread, and submit it.
