I would like to know if there would be enough clearance between the this oil pan and my cross member. I think I can modify my current motor mounts to bolt to drop solid mounts. We will see. Anyways I was wondering if there will be clearance with this pan.

If you really are swapping a Small Block Ford into a C-10 then there is really no way of knowing until you start the fabrication process. Since you are talking about modifying motor mounts you would place the engine in the best location to gain you the most clearance. Wish I could give more information but without actually being there to look at what you have and measuring things out there is no way to know but to start down the path of making it work.

Kym, you need to use the 302 oil pump to help with clearance inside the oil pan but you still use a 351 oil shaft. Here ya go:

I bought this kit to complete my 351w Swap into my 95 Mustang GT. I noticed that a standard 351 oil pump will not clear this pan. I also noticed that the LRS 351w swap oil pump is not intended for use with this oil pan kit. Furthermore, a 302 oil pump is at least 1 inch too short to clear the 351 crank. It simply will not clear the crank. I'm stuck. What oil pump will clear this pan and the 351 crank.

A stock replacement oil pump for a 1991 Crown Vic with the 5.8L will clear the pan without issue as this oil pan is the factory pan off of a 91 Crown Vic. The high volume pump will work, but you will need to clearance/dimple the pan using a ball pein hammer.
