241 Oil Pan ?


I recently bought a 241 and have disassembled it in prep for a freshening/rebuild. In cleaning the oil pan I found (probably opened up) a couple very thin areas that have a few small holes in one bottom corner of the sump. It's a front sump oil pan and I wondered if any 241 or other oil pan that would fit came with a rear sump? I'm thinking my eventual application (a '30 Ford Coupe) might need a rear sump to clear the tie rod.

I've seen where people cut the pan about 2-3" below the pan rail, flip the sump around and fit and weld it back together. I pretty proficient at TIG welding and am confident I could fix the holes and do the oil pan reconstruction but if there's a stock rear sump pan that would work I could save myself a lot of time and work by trying to find one. FWIW, my 241 is a '53 Hemi.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the info. The 241 is for my next project but at least knowing that I might need to modify the pan rather than even having a chance to find a different one will let me roll that around in my mind to prepare for it when that time comes. Thanks!

Leo's book shows two part numbers for the pans for the 53 Dodge car 241.
p/n 1532781 and p/n 1639275. Looks like these are both front sump.
Actually all of the Dodge car pans thru 56 show as front sump.

Also shows truck 1951 and 1952 241 and 270 no's 1534098, 1535025 and 1613735 but does not indicate front or rear.

To cut and turn the sump around you will have to also modify the pick up. Shouldn't be to difficult.
