Re: 500 Cad into my 65 Chevelle wagon
- All 70 to 76 Eldo's will have the correct pan and pick up.
I would check for oil pump clearance when trying to install a 500.
The frames on those cars are real narrow up front.

- Thanks Jeff,
My new engine came complete from trans yoke to a oil filter
relocation kit . A pan was given to me by a new friend. It has two
drain plugs. One on the forward, very shalow sump, and one one the
rear. He said it was a front wheel drive pan. I should be able to try
fitting the engine and trans in tomorrow. My entire front clip is off
of the car at this time. That should make this conversion easy.
