In addition to a standard magnetic drain plug, this oil pan features a front 1/2” NPT port for a supercharger or turbocharger oil return.
The supplied pipe plug should be Teflon taped and tightened securely if this port is not utilized.
The 20MM port located on the left side of the oil pan is for the factory low-oil warning sensor.
If you are not using this sensor, Moroso #22738 20MM plug & copper washer is available.
Due to the welding done on these pans, there is always a chance of slight warping. While our specially designed fixtures greatly reduce the warping factor, you may encounter a slight “rocking” effect when laying the pan down. Once the pan is drawn down securely by the bolts and the engine is run, you will find the pan will take a “set” in the straightened position. We have found that an initial “rocking” of up to 1/4” on a new pan is completely acceptable.
Oil pan should be installed with the engine in an upright position to insure proper trap door baffle function.
These guys are great! Customer service is absolutely top notch. Their pricing points are spot on and every month they off some sort of special on multiple parts. Not only that but the staff will educate you on the parts and their customer reveiw option of every part has been a huge help in determining the validity of each part you buy. American Muscle is the perfect example of what a full service parts distributor and custom tuning shop should be. I'm just glad they are Mustang exclusive!
