    Me too! We need to know more about that pan. Is it possibly some form of a French flatty pan? DD

    I don't think $1300 would buy that pan.

    Did anyone notice that the pan does not have a crankcase vent up front, as do the post 34 through 48 blocks? How do you adjust for that if you want to run a 24 stud motor?

    Is it not the same problem when putting an aluminum '32 Ford pan on a post '34 block?
