HI guys, good to be back. I have a question that I know has already been covered some where. I am working with a 4.3 vortec. Now I know that rice burners are @#%%#, but this one is getting a 4.3 in it.So it's not a true rice burner. It will allow my blazer to rest some. This will be a work truck. The problem I have is the vortec engine's oil pan is hitting the drag link. I have found a rear sump pan that will clear the link but the oil pump pickup is too small for the one on the vortec. You know the hole in the vortec pump where the pickup goes is about 5/8", the one off the other 4.3 is about 1/2" or so. Where do I need to go to find the right pickup screen. I thought the pumps were the same and the pickups different, but these are not the same. I don't know the year of the standard engine, but it's '86 up. I need one that will go deeper in the deep sump pan. The regular vortec pickup won't work. Thanks for any infor you can give me. grumpy1. Happy in ALABAMA!
