It's the pump 'PICK-UP' and the attached, round baffle that are the oddballs. These pics show how the round baffle fits snugly into the round hole in the MERCURY pan baffle. The pumps are essentially the same, physically. What kind of car are you putting this in? ALSO, what type of transmission are you going to bolt-up to? One more thing to remember....you can use whichever oil pan you choose, but you MUST have and utilize that pan's MATCHING 'starter plate'. DD
