I bought one at a swap meet, then 3 more appeared. Still have two spares might sell one, but no wild about international shipping.

Yes they use a special pickup, I have them to I think. Never had a stick issue.

Ok! So, to answer the age old question, what oil pan combo works and on the cheap.
The answer:
Summit SUM G-3533 oil pan, notched 2"-3" high x 3" deep $47.99
Melling MEL-305S pick up $12.31
Stock M55G oil pump
Stock dipstick

Tah Da!!! This Will work on 0" to 1 1/4" forward BBC.

Where did you get your information, that appears to be a stock pan for a 1st gen Camaro or Chevelle.

I got it from the "Book of hard knocks". Perhaps i should clarify, you have to notch the pan yourself, but it's the cheapest and closest pan to fit.
I got tired of looking at $400 milodon oil pans that look like a stamped piece that someone cut up and notched, then expect you to buy special pumps, pickups, and dipstick for another $400.
I wanted to find something economical, semi stock, and as close to bolt on for the masses as possible without breaking the bank.
