    Default What oil pan are you using?

    Hi,
    For those of you putting the TA block in a stock frame, what oil pan are you using?
    Thanks, Allen

    I build a standard Tomahawk aluminum oil pan, or custom Tomahawk pans. I've also converted some of the new replacement TA steel pans to fit the new block. A few people built their own and I think at least one that I know of had another oil pan company build a custom one for them. I've most likely built around 95%+ of the pans for the Tomahawk blocks.

    Let me know if I can help you.

    (Pictured below are a few of the standard Tomahawk pans in production.)

    Hey Steve, thanks, I'm not quite there yet, but will certainly give you a shout. Nice looking pans!

    Stef's in a stock frame here, and it fit perfect. Truly a work of art, inside and out, and they have a pattern for Tomahawk blocks now. I like their o-ringed drain plug - those blue, plastic gaskets always seem to leak. I use to use the blue plastic gaskets at my auto repair shop, but I had so many comebacks that the remaining stock that I had of them went into the dumpster.
