Default Oil Pan Issues Using an EAB Engine in a 1940 Pickuo


I have a 1940 Ford pickup under construction at this time. I am going to use an EAB Flathead V8. I don't know if it's a 1952 or '53 engine, but it has narrow belt water pumps that I am going to change out for '48 - '52 truck pumps to solve the mounting issue.

However, this engine has a center sump pan on it & I am not sure if it will work in a 1940 pickup. I have seen the '49 - '53 engines with a rear sump style pan used in 1940 Ford cars & pickups. Does anyone know if there are steering clearance issues using a center sump pan?
