L78 pil pan
« on: April 19, 2010, 01:36:58 PM »
Did that engine have a special 5 quart pan or was it a 4 quart pan? I am asking specifically for 1968 but in general as well. Thanks.

A 5 quart pan will not fit a Camaro chassis.
Learning more and more about less and less...

So a Chevelle or Corvette might have used a 5 qt. pan?

Corvettes, trucks, full-size used the 5 quart pan.
