Pan should fit. I have a 5 qt. Had to put a couple of washers under the motor mount to shim it up just little to clear.

The pan I have ,will not fit. I think it is for a 400 ,front seal or timing chain cover is giving me trouble.Front opening will not fit up right.Even after I trimmed it up (the seal).Any thoughts?????

you know that they make 2 different front seals for the oil pan one thick one thin you might have the wrong one in

I have a 7 quart pan bolted to a 400 with stock appearing mounts fits good.
