    I'm currently building a custom oil pan for my stock car and I need to know some specs for clearance.

    Unfortunately I don't have another F/M/J car that isn't buried under 4' of snow.


    I'm hoping someone can help me out.


    What I need is the measurement from the oil pan to:


    Oil Pan to Pitman arm with steering turned all the way to the left.

    Oil Pan to Idler Arm with steering turned all the way to the right.

    Oil pan to K-Frame at it's closest.

    Oil Pan to Drag Link at it's closest.


    Distance from Oil Pan to the bottom of the K-frame. Just put something straight against the K-frame and then measure from it UP to the oil pan so I can get an idea on how far down I can drop it.


    Hopefully I can snag someone doing spring maintenance.

    These dimensions will vary from car to car....
    I measured on a Mirada with a 318

    Awesome!

    Thank you so much!

    I will be building it well within those dimensions, I just needed a good ballpark to start.
