1678Re: 472 rear sump oil pan
- Aug 18, 2005Roy,
The '68-'78 big eldo rear sump pan is the best bet, but make sure to
get the pu tube, as those pu tubes are no longer available new.
Afaik, the weird [welded sump] rear sump pan from the smaller '79
to '84 fwd cars [425" and 368"] might also work, but I'm not sure
which pu tube is required. You *may* be able to use a pu tube from
the '79 car, as afaik, it was a 425". Afaik, the pu tube from the 80-
84 engines [368"] will work on the the '68-'79 engines.
Not sure if your Nova subframe will allow it, but the '77-84 rwd pan
is a mid sump. Afaik, the '77-'79 pu tube must be used, but the 80-84
pan is the same as the 77-79.
I would try to get the dipstick tube from the engine the pan comes
from, and note which hole it is in when you remove it.
