I already put a "wanted" thing in the classifieds, but I like to cut to the chase and ask the gang! I scored a running 272 (with issues, of course) for my truck, and am in the process of rebuilding it. The engine is a '57 out of a car (yes, with the ECZ-G heads, YAY!).
Anyhow, since it's a car, the oil pan is wrong and I need one for a truck. I am the lucky owner of not one but THREE car oil pans! DOH!
I ran a Y car oil pan in my 60 for years. Used it on the farm and the pan never hit the axle. Fits up to the truck timing cover same as truck oil pan. No problem mechanically.
If you buy a truck oil pan make sure you get the oil pickup tube that goes with it.
My situation is that I'm lowering the truck. The front is down 3" and will go another 2-3" before it's all said and done. The rear end is also coming down a healthy 6 - 8". That's where my concern is for needing a truck sump.
There are Several 292 Pans on e-Bay as I type this.
