COBRA OIL PAN FITMENT
Ipicked up a Cobra aluminum oil pan at a swap meet. It doesn’t have the dents like my original 1966 289 steel pan. It should fit, right? Trent Lowe Effingham, Illinois
Yes, it should fit. The two “dents” on the sides of the oil pan were put there to provide extra clearance for the inner tie-rod ends on the Mustang. The Cobra pan doesn’t have them, but you should clear no problem. Just to be on the safe side, turn your steering wheel lock-to-lock and check the clearance to the tie rods. If it looks like they would clear without the indentations, you’re golden. Nice score on the pan!
