Help thanks steve

There are only 3 rear sump pans for the late flathead that I know of; '48-'52 truck with the large clean out, '53 "stepped" truck rear sump, and '49-'51 Mercury. Scroll down in the link below to pictures 24-28 for a visual, and place the cursor over the little yellow icon for text and zoom.
