I have a 10 qt. BBC Gen IV also that will be/is for sale. It's got cracks in the windage tray that I have not completely finished fixing yet. The pan itself is fine.

Let me know on the pans. My block is a Gen4. I was looking at this at Jegs

http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_10001_10002_354124_-1

Let me know on those heads.I have a set of domed pistons I might use so they will need to be open chamber. If there closed chamber I might be able to get my hands on some flat tops and use them as well

I'll go in the garage and check the heads , make sure that oil pan will clear. When I first built my bbc in my last boat I was told by all the marine mechanics that the pan has to be 7 inches deep in order to clear so I bought a 9 inch pan and ended up having to sell it for a loss before I actually listened , and went and bought a 7 inch pan.

Once the windage tray is fixed I'll want about $125 for it, it's Moroso 10 qt. 7 3/4" deep. Marcs friend's (and mine) oil pan is a Dooley Enterprises jet boat oil pan, mint condition, well over $500 new, 10 qt. 7 1/2" deep, waiting on Marc for the price...

You can use domed pistons in a 454 with oval port closed chamber heads. They came stock that way in the late 60's and early 70's. The '69 Corvette 427 4 barrel had 101cc closed chamber heads with domed pistons (117cc I think) and gave a 10.25:1 compression ratio. With flat topped pistons it'd be somewhere around 8.00:1.

On that boat you also did a engine swap changing engine brands and drilled new holes in the stringers. I kept the existing holes in my stringers, I have a 7 1/2" deep pan in mine (exactly like the ? 7" ? pan you used?) and I have 1/2" clearance under my pan.

As far as machining goes I have no idea. We just dropped off a whole motor and they maged everything , And gave it back in pieces.

Blue-
If you and Marc can reach a deal before he heads to Bakersfield this weekend, I'd be happy to do a relay of some sort to save you some shipping costs. Just lemme know.
