Looks good... You going to paint the spark plug wire brackets separately then install? what about your spark plug wire heat shields attached to the head bolts?

I wasn't gonna say anything but feel I must!

As a fellow F8 C500 owner and oilpan officionado, I think from the pics thats a 70 pan... shruggy
Just fitted one to a 70-440ci sixpack engine and got one on my 71-440ci Gtx too... icon_smile_big

My worry is it won't fit the 69 K-member... scratchchin scratchchin scratchchin
402 pan is coming to mind here. 2thumbs

Thanks for the advice.... yes, it is a new oil pan, a Hemi style 6 Quart from 440 source, and listed to fit an 440 RB engine. If it doesn't fit, I'll be pretty pissed. Had it a couple of years. The old 402 pan was pretty banged up.  2thumbs

Hi C500,

Sorry to 'rain on your parade' Old Timer!

NOT my intention at ALL!!!


Oilpan clearances have been a 'bug-bear' of mine 'for years' with Mopars.
Even pans that are supposed to fit actually don't, sometimes.

I agree the 402 is a bit small for a 440ci Hipo engine, but the 69 hemi pan is probably worse lol.
I think the 70-71 pan is easily the best of the range and never thought it could be fitted to an earlier car 'without mods'...

But knowing Brandon at 440 source, if he says it will fit, then it will... 2thumbs
He must have had it slightly re-designed before manufacture, so its a NO-brainer for all 440 hipo engines!!! cheers

I assume its not an exact copy of the SIX-QUART factory pan, but something very similar?

Carry on the GOOD work Old Timer antipodean! notworthy

Wow, this is the 1st time seeing this one going on.

i LOVE F8 green , and would look killer with white interior, white stripe and whiteline tires. IMO the red lines would get lost in all that dark green

With all the paint work done and engine done, its all down hill from here . This is where the fun really starts,,,,for it is anyway .

 2thumbs Yip, white interior eventually, white stripe. I have some Magnums with whitelines, and some steel factory style wheels too, with a couple of hubcap options. Redlines will go on those eventually.

Hey Troy - how many heat shields should there be? One?

should be a bat wing style shield on passengers side , and a smaller cup shaped shield drivers side

Drivers side is held under on the nuts that holds the exhaust manifold on

Pass side is held under 2 head bolts

Before install, drop it a few times, like they did on the assembly line.  eek

I reckon you should get some green suede shoes to go with a white suit - that would look sharp  Wink
