    Bling Bling oil pans!

    Its about time someone started making the conversion oil pans--the main obstacle to using the caddy motor in anythind non-caddy--I know you can use the eldorado pan and pick up tube,but who wants a rusty boneyard pan that wont last long?,and they arent cheap if you can still find one.Many of the eldorado motors are missing completely,mostly because they came with only the 500,AND the correct oilpan!..and I did see a few that were still intact,but has anyone ever pulled a motor out of a FWD caddy??--they are probably THE worst motor to yank than any other car--at the junkyards they break the bellhousing 90% of the time when they pull the motor with the forkloader,even if your care ful and use an engine hoist its a ballbuster to get it out without damaging the tranny and other stuff on the motor--Glad to see they finally got wise and started making the oilpan--only thing I dont understand is why use aluminum?? So it will cost more??..I suppose it wont rust,so thats a plus--but even aluminum corrodes pretty quickly in our salty atmosphere and roads in new england...Oh well--maybe if I still live here next year and havent sold the 500 I have sitting in the shed yet,I might get to put it in something!.:crazy:

    i have delt w/ the cad company & was very unsatisfied w/ the results.:mad:

    it has led me to build mine using a lot of chevy bottum end parts. nearly the same price & a lot more cubes. 540 to be excact. the cad stuff i will buy from MTS.

    All I did was order their book from them to get Caddy info when I was doing my swap. All my parts were either made or obtained locally.


    As for the swap oil pans you don't have to buy an oil pan use the stock one, I did worked awesome too, don't pay their $250 or more for an El Dorado pan with pick up tube :(

    :o I miss my Blazer......
