OK, I've gotten some email about this so I thought I would update everyone here. I'm still trying to figure out which pan to send him. Is there any one pan that will cover all years? Mines a 59 and had road draft. I wanted to put PCV back but I remember something about a hump on the old ones that interfered with putting a later pan on. For someone like myself, that's ok, I can modify the block while I have it apart but that might be problem if someone has one in a car and tries to put on on. So I need advice, what year pan I need to send him. If my 59 pan can't be used, I'm going to have to come up with one. I did speak with him so everything is still on in lieu of the right pan to work from.

I need someone to loan me a PCV style valley cover. I have the early one, I just need one post road draft. Contact me at lear31@windstream.net for coordination.

If you need a stock vally pan for the later models I can pull the one off of my 66 462. The project is on the back burner for another season so the engine sits in the garage lonely.

I sent Rocky a nice clean pcv valley pan around 10-30-09. He e-mailed me that he received it. TJR
