Default Oil pump intake location relative to pan

I'm trying to make some oil baffles with hinged doors for a typical b230 pan. However, I'm concerned about interference with the oil pump. Does anyone know where the oil pump inlet is located relative to the oil drain hole? Or does someone have an engine on a stand that could check?

I've seen this picture, and the sharpie outline could show the oil pump intake location, but I'm not sure.

Thats where the pickup is. You can see the marks where he welded the baffle in the pan around it.

That's what I thought, but then I found this picture:



It looks like the pump pickup is right over the drain plug. If that's the case, then any baffles with trap doors could potentially interfere. But it could just be a perspective thing.

I replied to your PM; yes, the dash line is the pickup, and I have some engines on stands if you need more pics.
