    I believe that you need a front sump oil pan and pickup tube..

    It is the oil pan.

    Different oil pans were made for different applications. You will need to get an oil pan for a 351 for a car of that period. Maybe even for your model.

    That truck pan does not work in a car. There may be other things like this that are attached to the engine. May be not a fitment thing and still different.

    To echo the other posts you will need a different pick up tube for the different pan.

    Pitch the pick up tube. And selling the take off pan to a truck guy will recoup some of your costs.

    And if you are taking the pan & pick up tube off, I would replace the oil pump.
    And I would replace the timing chain set too.
    It is easy to do these things now.
    If you have a chain that gets worn or a pump that has worn, changing later is much more difficult.

    I had another thought, if the core plugs are questionable at all replace now.

    Plus painting the block will never be easier than right now.

    The work is never done!

    Even when the ride is drivable down the road there will be something.

    A vacuum reservoir. That one has a built in check valve. Some do not.
    The vacuum source (ultimately the intake manifold) is attached to the larger nipple. The item that requires the vacuum signal I attached to the smaller nipple.
