69 Valley Pan recomendations

Hey all,

I pulled my Pontiac 400 last night. I'm looking to order parts I need/may need this weekend. I assume I need a valley pan, won't know until it's opened up, so I'm looking for recommendations or pointers on installation, brand/model etc etc... I.E. Stainless divider for the water pump etc...

I'm a "stock guy" so I'm aware there is a OE and non OE type. I also know there can be a leaking problem so any pointers would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks, Dan

I like the original factory style, as long as it will fit and not have any clearance issues with the rest of your plans.

Turns out mine was reusable along with the oil pan... Saved a few Franklins there. Use a one piece oil pan gasket with a BOP rear crank seal. I hope my oil leaks are in the past now.

"...I.E. Stainless divider for the water pump..."

Don't know where the best price is. But here's one sold on Ebay & Amazon.

1969 81 Pontiac Water Pump Divider Plate Stainless Steel | eBay

https://www.amazon.com/Parts-Place-P.../dp/B00H87B0VG

Butler sells it for $28.95 + shipping.

Here's one for about twice the price.

Probably be a good idea to replace your water pump sleeves. I noticed they are offered on that Amazon ad I linked. Also, just about any place that sells the plate, sell the sleeves too. Don't forget to reduce the clearance between the plate and the water pump impeller fins. A big gap will reduce water pump efficiency.

They will be if installed correctly, my '67 doesn't leak a drop now.
