I'm looking for a box style oil pan with pickup to fit a 351c in a tube chassis car. I've had the Milodon 31482 (see pic) and it's a very nice piece but I'm looking to see what else is out there. I'd like to have a peek at an old Hamburgers or Moroso to see how they measure up and compare to a Milodon. I contacted Trans Dapt/Hamburgers about building a pan but supposedly they no longer do custom pans. Does anyone have anything? If so please send pics and let me know what you're asking. I live in Va 22602. Please no, road race, circle track or Pantera pans.


Thanks, Div1Racer

I think it would be hard to beat that Milodon pan. They're one of my favorites.

Kevko makes a very good product. I think they make a pan for that application. They are made in Minnesota. Good luck, I love the car

I've checked Kevko and about everywhere else. As I mentioned earlier the Milodon is a very nice piece and I'll probably get another one of those. I think Moroso listed one in their catalog a few years back so I may call them to see if it's still a stocking item.

WATCH the oil pressure on braking!!!!! We killed MANY innocent 351C blocks because the oil dropped to zero in shut down and on stopping after a burn out or backing up. Made all kinds of stupid oiling mods thinking it was a supply problem when it was just A poorly designed Moroso Pro Stock pan. Couldn't figure out why we couldn't kill one on the dyno but would throw rods out in three or four passes. Put in an idiot light and the "light came on" on braking. Added baffles helped , dry sump eliminated the problem. NOTHING wrong with the oiling , just the pan. Lesson learned.

My Dad's tube chassis car originally had an old Hamburger's pan on it, and although it fit fairly well, we couldn't keep it from stress cracking. It was aluminum, and by god at least once a year it would develop a leak, and it was always along one of the welded seems, especially in a corner. I was pretty happy to sell that piece of junk.
