The Dooley Jet boat pan, as well as others is a six quart GM blank that has had a box and baffles welded onto it, so they keep the same depth that you already have, but hold 4 more quarts... :thumbup:

An inch is actually a lot.  ;)

Max pan depth (pan rail to lowest part of sump) on almost all jet boat applications is 7 3/4 to maybe 8" to maintain proper drive line alignment Tom

  I am running a Canton Racing 10 qt that has internal baffles and windage tray, its 7 3/4 inch deep, on a 77 Charger Day Cruiser
  with a 502 ford. I purchased the Canton pump pickup as well. It fits just fine although a little snug at back of pan. What ever
  you do dont buy a Milodon marine pan for a 460 its not designed to work on forward facing engines.

 ??? ??? ???  Ran one on Moo with no problems. Only issue was it WAS a little tight to the hull in the front, but so was the Ford Racing front sump that came out of the boat, which is weird, but that engine sits VERY low in the boat. JE pump and was designed for a low profile engine cover... :screwy: I haven't seen many jet boats where the engine is so low mounted, either, so I think it's a non-issue. If you got an inch of clearance, any of 'em will fit, Milodon included.

Moo's going with a Dooley this time around for that reason, and the fact that I had one, and then will have 2 Milodons for the twin jet boat... :thumbup:

  The issue with the Milodon is not that wont fit. I installed it along with the proper pickup and new pump and at 3000rpm and
  above oil pressure dropped dramatically. The pan has a front sump but a rear pickup, and i discovered most of the oil was
  staying in the sump therfore at high rpms engine starved for oil. Put stock pan and pickup back on, oil pressure was fine
  except  a few hours later rods start knocking. Motor was 33 years old  so i did an overhaul and went with the Canton pan
  and it works great.

Couldn't agree more have had prior issues with the "M" pans on both BBF and BBC and resist using them Canton is the "shizzle ,just used one on the big Ford stroker we built and going to do the same on the one were building now ! very NICE product !
