Any sources you folks know of??
You can likely get a new one from TA Performance or members will offer to sell a used one here.
Checked TA performance, was unable to find it there..
Somebody will likely stop by here with one for you.
I do have an oil pan for sale,but its from a 70 GS 350.I think they should be the same.are they not? By the way,this is in excellent condition.Bruno.
Thank you for getting back to me. Sadly I am not that familiar with the minutia of Buick chassis changes over the years. The engine is a buick 350 cu in nailhead? How much $?
Figure $50.00plus shipping,whatever that will be,as the prices just keep going up.No,the engine is not a nailhaed,those were made until 1966 ,its a regular 350.Bruno.
sorry about the nailhead reference.. just want to be sure it's a BUICK engine, and not a chevy/olds/pontiac one.. They mixed and matched back then...
Can you send a picture and the VIN for the car?
$19.00 to ship from mi to oh. Just shipped one yesterday.
Thanks Bruno.. I am in MASS so shipping will probably a little more.. Was hoping for a picture of the oil pan and the engine designation so it can be compared to the '78 350
John,it actually should be the same,as I am on Long Island,NY.As to the pictures,if you have a bad oil pan,take a picture of it and put it here on V8,as I do not know how to put them here.Usually my grand Kids do it for me,but with the coronavirus,I can't see them for quite a while.Bruno.
IIRC the 78 came with mass amounts of motors.. Buick.. Olds Maybe chevy also.. Make sure you know what you got..
John, here's a few pics of a 75, 350 pan. Brunos would be the same.
Bruno, I just spoke with the mechanic and he believes that your pan will fit his engine just fine.
I really wish I could see a picture of your pan to assess the condition, but if you can't post (or email one) I will have to take your word that it's in excellent condition
How would you like to be paid?
My e-mail is email@example.com and I can give you my cell if you want to communicate directly! Thanks!!
I’ve never met Bruno (or you) but I’ll vouch for him and his parts.
Thank you Patrick! It's always good to hear support like that. I am looking forward to getting the part and helping to make my mechanic's day!
Bruno is the gold standard here. He has 50 plus years of Buick racing and parts experience.
Thanks guys.. I have sent him an e-mail and hope to complete the transaction soon. I am fairly new here and am cautious by nature. I feel much better now .
