Default Oil pan differences

I need to replace the oil pan on my '31 pickup. I have 5 spare engines. One of them has a removable flat round plate just under the oil pump. Does anyone know if that oil pan will fit the '31

It will fit, the one with the removable plate was used on the early 28's

Yes, all A pans will fit all A blocks. A pans will also fit B blocks too, with a few modifications.

Any idea when the removable plate style was no longer produced?
