Community Q&A Question: Oil Pump Problem

Asking About: Mustang Ford Racing 351W Swap Oil Pan Kit (5.8L) (79-95)


Oil Pump Problem

I bought this kit to complete my 351w Swap into my 95 Mustang GT. I noticed that a standard 351 oil pump will not clear this pan. I also noticed that the LRS 351w swap oil pump is not intended for use with this oil pan kit. Furthermore, a 302 oil pump is at least 1 inch too short to clear the 351 crank. It simply will not clear the crank. I'm stuck. What oil pump will clear this pan and the 351 crank.

A stock replacement oil pump for a 1991 Crown Vic with the 5.8L will clear the pan without issue as this oil pan is the factory pan off of a 91 Crown Vic. The high volume pump will work, but you will need to clearance/dimple the pan using a ball pein hammer.
