    aftermarket ones now available!

    Someone posted a link on here a few weeks ago ,someplace is making them aftermarket now,but I didnt save the link..:doah:--I have read on www.500cid.com that you can use a 425 mid sump pan in most GM trucks too--they might have more info on the aftermarket pans there also...I havent seen any eldorado's at all in our local boneyards,last year I saw 2--one with the motor already sold and missing,the other ones pan was crushed and rusted--unless you have more old cars in your area,good luck finding a used one--most yards wont sell just the oilpan off a running 472-500 motor..:crazy:

    just be sure to get the oil pick-up tube also. if u are running much lift u can prolly use a frt sump if u are building your own mounts
