I am installing a 5.0 Ho motor out of a 90 mustang w/full fuel injection. I was told that the oil pan is diferent & will not fit in my 68. does anyone make a pan that is a dirrect replacement for my car. I know that the oil pan out of a 68 will not dirrectly mount up due to the different configuration of the front timing cover


everytime I think I am done, I find more stuff to add. WHOO HOOOO!!!!

The '90 HO has dual oil pan and pickup. Use '68 oil pump, pickup and oil pan. A replacement oil pan can be purchased from any vendor. The '90 timing cover requires oil dipstick tube access for the front sump.

Also, I think you can use your 68 timing cover so you have a place for your dipstick.

I thought timing covers are interchangeable. A fuel pump eccentric might be part of a '68 timing chain assembly. An electric fuel pump would replace a mechanical fuel pump when switching to EFI. Can you provide more info?
