oil pan problem

609 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Bill S
Help. My daughter changed her upper and lower oil pan on her 82 and now the lower pan won't snug down. There is a 1/4 to 1/8 gap on the oil pump side. Any thoughts.
At the ranch.

If it's a used lower pan, it may be from a 1600 engine. They used a shallower sump. If someone else doesn't step in with the measurements I'll try to measure one tomorrow. Easy fix, just use a lower sump from a later (69? and up) engine. The other thing to check is whether or not your upper pan has a dipstick tube.
