    Ive been a Ford nut since I was 11 years old. Ive built literally dozens of Mustangs, Lincolns and Mercurys but have run into a problem. I'm hoping someone on this site can help me. I own a 1964 Falcon Futura with the 170 CI straight 6. Rather then do the typical 5.0 swap I an thinking about a carburated ( 1982-84) 3.8 but I cannot find any information regarding the oil pan. I need a front sump oil pan for the swap, can anyone tell me if there was ever a 3.8 or 4.1 with a front sump oil pan? thanks

    Have you looked at a 250 crossflow motor lad or even a 250 pre crossflow with a 2v head they are Australian motors roughly 4.1 liter and carby some later crossflow came EFI too straight six they will solve ya sump problem but if ya stuck on a V6 look into 3.0 Essex engine out of a ford Capri but use the English exhaust manifolds not the American ones lol
