Default oil pan and pickup for 302 swap??

Hi all,

Just now taking apart my explorer motor for arp studs and HGs. Question is, what is the oil pan that is used for the swap? is it just the stock oil pan? The exploder pan is HUGE and will def not work well. Anyone know?

Thanks!

As the link says, a 'Fox' bodied car, up to '93 Mustang plus a number of years of Crown Vic 302's used a double slump oil pan with 2 drain holes. These will work without further modification. You will need to use the appropriate oil pick up pipe to fit inside the replacement pan. I found the pan on eBay for $5 but the new pick up pipe and gaskets cost $60.

What are you doing about your motor mount brackets? Use the '93 Mustang 302 mounts.

What about electrical?

Electrical is handled by megasquirt and a custom harness.

mine has a 2-sump pan from a crown vic.

i only empty the rear drain plug though, the front drain plug has a fitting that allows me to use it as my oil return for the turbo.
