Re: 472 in a 78 gmc
Afaik, the rwd car pan from the 368 is same as the rwd pan from a
425. It'll work, but the pu tube from a 368 may not work on a
472/500. If not, you could buy a new pu tube for a '77-'79 425 rwd
If your 368 pan is the weird eldo pan with welded sump, I have no
idea if the pu tube will work on a 472/500.
