the fox body stangs have a double sump oilpan... it might not work on your 77. im not sure how the 5.0 mounts in the eb's but im pretty sure they dont use the double sump. check broncograveyard.com

If your truck has anything larger than a 2" lft you should have no problems with the 5.0 pan. If you don't have any lift I wouldn't recommend it, the pan may contact the diff under compression. (front right corner of the rear sump, if I had a digi cam I could show you the "self clearancing" on mine!!))

What about an oilpan from a '68 Galaxie? I have a 1970 Bronco. The original 302 is long gone so I have one from a '68 Galaxie. I plan on putting a 3-4 inch lift on it. Thanks!

I think both are front sump pans so you should have no problem.

Thanks! I was thinking that all early Broncos had the double hump to clear the diff.

My '76 only has one hump and I know its original, that's why I think it will work, plus with your lift you should not have any clearance problems.

"What about an oilpan from a '68 Galaxie?"
Hmmmmm... I was under the impression the pan & pick-up tube/screen were different on the Bronco due to steep downhill runs. :unsure:
