1972 Chevy Chevelle V8 Automatic

I'm doing an engine swap. The oil pan on the 350 crate engine is hitting the cross member on my 72 chevelle. The motor is a Good Wrench replacement motor made between 1980 and 87. The block number is 14101148. It has a really big oil pan on it and I'm assuming a really big crank.? Any ideas on how to get this motor to fit would be great. Thanks

All 350s are created equal, get a new pan, 1 for a 68-72 chevelle, you should be fine. Good Luck, Lou

I forgot where is the dipstick on the new engine, if it's on the left side you'll be fine, if it's on the right you'll have to get a pan from a speed shop. For that swap

You will probably need to get an oil pan, and maybe the oil pick up tube for the specific car year.
