I'm dropping a 69' 429 into a 78' F150 4X4 and am wondering if there are differences between the 429/460 rear sump pans. I know there is the 8 1/4" and the 8 5/8" deep pans but will one work better than the other? Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.

You should check into the 370/429 truck pan. It's rear sump and big. It's also basically full length depth. I don't know the exact depth, as mine is at my workplace and I'm on vacation.

I took one off of a early 80's F-350,the pan has the "hump" towards the back.Pretty sure this will work.GOOD LUCK!!!

I have a 460 in by 79 4x4 and I used a pan fron an 87 f-350. my old pan was a front sump, which meant jacking the engine up just to remove it. the 87 pan fits with no problem. you will however need to also get the pump, pick-up, dipstick and tube from an 87[or any other 80's i think]. the dipstick on the 87 pan goes into the side of the pan, not the front cover like the earlier engines. the oil pump shows the same part numbers the parts stores, but believe me, IT IS DIFFERENT for the 80's model. the machined surface where the pickup bolts to is at a different angle. It took going to 5 different stores to find the right one, I think I finally found it at auto-zone. the only other pain was the pan, pick-up, dipstick, and dipstick tube were dealer only items and after 4 trips to 4 different dealers I finally had all the parts

Ford Racing has a complete kit for the rear sump conversion. It includes a pan, dipstick, pump and pickup. The price wasn't bad either. But of course I am dealin in Canuk bucks which tends to be a lot more than U.S. dollars

I did mine for around $250 U.S .Of course I had to track each part down myself, but I can imagine how much it would cost from Ford Racing.
