5.3 oilpan?

I'm installing a 5.3 in my 64 Chevelle and it has a F body oilpan on it. Will that pan work? I'm using ICT mounts.

Maybe, there are better options out. I used a Fbody pan with those mounts no issues but I also have my engine as close to the firewall as possible.

Holley 302-2 or 302-3 worked on mine with t350. Everything stayed in the stock position.

Used a Holley 302-2 on mine and it was money well spent.

Tighten it till it strips and back it off a quarter turn.

Re: 5.3 oilpan?

I used the f-body pan and notched my cross member, am not using ICT mounts.

The drop down on the pan is very close to the cross member. Problem is the crossmember is very rounded, oil pan is very square. I've seen some people were successful in heating up the crossmember and clearancing it for the oil pan with a BFH. Just need to knock 2 spots that are closest to the edges of the pan.

I was going to run my engine forward until I bolted up my headers and had all kinds of clearance issues, reason I went the route of notching. Now my engine is back against the firewall. I can probably fit 2 finger widths between pan and frame all the way around.

Re: 5.3 oilpan?

The Lord shined down on me today...Was told the pan on the 5.3 I got was a F body pan....well it looked like it had a small leak around the pan so I removed it and was happy to see it had Holley on the bottom of it. Don't know it its the 302-1 or -2 pan. The only numbers I could find on it was 70R150B.

Re: 5.3 oilpan?

It's pretty easy to tell by looking at them if you have a reference:



Though I'm going to guess it's a 302-2 in black?

Re: 5.3 oilpan?

Looks like it is a 302-2 to me as well. Good luck on that one, should fit great.
