Mustang II uses a different front sump pan then most normal front sump pans.

1978 Mercury Bobcat 2.3t swapped.Always needs more parts!

The sway bar won't fit with the V8 in a Pinto. I had to remove mine on my 80 wagon.

handles with a lot of push with sway bar seems it would be worse without one, but makes sence.Never asked for a oil pan must be someone else sorry.

My reply was directed to the the member who requested I dig out a 2000 cc oil pan, since his was squished. he knows who he is, yea,,, a charter member no less.

Message intended don't ask for parts unless you intend to follow through with purchase

My above message should have been placed in another location,since the starter of this conversation is not the person who asked for an oil pan, my apologies, but I bet the correct guy read it

Mea Culpa
