Default Anyone have any luck with a Milodon oil pan?

My engine builder topped off my engnie with a cheapo Mr Gasket Oil chrome oil pan and it's already leaking badly. I have the Fel-pro 1 piece pan gasket ready, but I need to get a better pan. I'm looking at getting the stock replacement gold irridated finish BB oil pan that fits a 64-90 Chevy.

I was looking at the Moroso low profile pan, but I don't want to change my oil pickup.

Got one on my small block and it is much better than the cheapo orange pan I had got and sent back. Has a baffle and reinforcing around some of the bolt holes.

I have a deep sump 7 qt Milodon on the Vette and a 7 qt road race pan on my Nova. Both are very good products. They are on small blocks but the quality should be the same on a big block part. You can't go wrong with Milodon.

It's a little dirty and it's a small block but not a single problem with it.

Hmm..It only shows one oil pan or the BB chevy from 64-90. There was more than one stock BB pan right?

Call Summit tech line they have the vendor books. I can't remember the pan dimentions but the front is something like less than 4 inches and the rear sump shouldn't be much over 8 inches. Off the top of my head I can't give exact numbers.
