Default J.C. Whitney 87-4530 "Dropped tie rod"

One of these days, I may swap out the 327 for a 427 (just for something to do), and I was browsing through some of my old J.C. Whitney catalogs and ran across this (see attached)!

Anyone ever seen of of these, used one of these or even HAVE one of these?

I know you can buy modified oil pans, but this seems like a better idea (if it actually works).

Cool! Thanks Bruce. They don't appear to have an online catalog. Do you happen to know the price?

Thanks techman441. Appreciate the reply.

Pops, this particular J.C. Whitney catalog is number 271 and the copyright is 1969. No exact date but it says "First of the 1970 accessories" on the cover, so I would imagine late, 1969.

Thanks Pops. Looks like it's only available as an exchange. I guess I'll need to find someone willing to sell theirs!

Cool part, but I don't need it. I have cornered the marked on notched Moroso BBC oil pans.

All you need to send them is an original core, Not a modified one.
