'70 - '77 250 Oil Pans are now available!

Post #2 by chad » Fri Feb 15, 2019 12:52 pm

I put ina call to the company…
I got the crazyest call-back that this was a rear sump pan. I understood there was no rear sump 250s ever made (rear 200 in the 80s).

I think that who ever contacted you simply does not know the front from the back and how it mount on our engines.

From the photo, the larger sealing for the rear main looks like it is in the rear. Th drain plug is on the drivers side.
I believe it is a front sump.
I know the owners personally & when they get one in stock i will get a phone call next week.
I will let you know.
Has anyone checked Mustangs Unlimited or Virginia Mustang to verify this??

The Granda and Monarch chassis was based on the Fairlane chassis design.and used a front sump oil pan. There weren't any rear sump oil pans made for a 250, since no 250 engines were ever installed into the later Fox chassis cars. So if you want or need a rear sump 250 oil pan you have cut up a front sump pan to mod it into a rear sump pan.. Good luck :thumbup: :nod:

The sump has to be in the front because the oil pump is there ...It can be full length , front and rear sump, but it cannot be rear only.
I remember this because I had to pound out the front of the pan to get the modded 250 pump to fit my 200.

Man, that price is kinda high. I get they are the first ones and all but...that's about how much an entire 250 engine can be had for.

I'll probably braze the 170 rear sump lower 3/4 to the 250 'ring'. Not sure yet bout the oil pump's receptical 4 the p/u tube (& screen). They may B of different diamiters so that rear sump p/u'n screen may not wrk. I've heard some "just bend it" (the 250's) so as to create the rear sump 250. I don't trust that (till I get there'n try a lill heat/bend tool).

Any 1 know about the diamiters of the different pick up tubes?( ie 170 vs 250?)

I think it's pretty clear it's a regular, "front" sump. The question is whether they are a good fit. Until someone bolts one up and gets back with us this discussion is moot. It's awesome they have been stamped out and are available. It's mind blowing actually, what could the demand possibly be?? There is no aftermarket for 250's. Is there a new oil pan for 144-200's? If so, is it a pos? Seems like if there's a market for anything, it's the 200.

It looks right.
