    I've got a 4.3 in mine. You"ll see more Fords and the Dodge in these trucks because of the oil sump being forward.
    Yeah Chevy's can work, but don't really sit down low enough because the rear sump and the trucks steering.
    Eventually I cut the trucks IFS and replaced it with a 74 pinto IFS (Mustang II design).
    You could try a Corvette dry sump oil pan set up, but it won't be cheap.
