Is the deep pan worth it for teh 727?

Just looking at a 727 deep pan on fleebay. Wondering;

1. Are there any mods that needs to be done to fit the deep pan?
2. Does anyone know the diference in volume between the stock pan and deep pan?

Looking at them, cannot imagine it is more than 1.5-2L diference. Another attractive feature is the drain plug. I don't see a spot for the magnet like on our TF's.

Cheers for any thoughts you can offer.

I've been cosidering one for awhile. I put a deep pan on my old Wrangler and it made a night and day difference on keeping power on steep climbs offroad. As long as the deep pan also has the extended pickups.

A drain plug would be nice, but I do not think a deeper pan is needed. There are 9 quarts of fluid in there. Keep the fluid cool and you will have no problems.

Got this steel deep pan on ebay. 58 bucks + 21 shipping. I've already got the new style seal so wont be using the one it comes with below. It comes with another filter by the look of it. Has the extension to drop the filter and a drain plug most importantly. Just wondering if it has the dimple for the magnet. I hope it does as it would be a step back if it didn't. Its in the mail so time will tell.

What do you need a dimple for? Slap the magnet in there and run it.

1. If your transmission mount is old and sacked out, you may/may not have clearance issues between the pan and crossmember. The steel pans seem to be fine...it's the aluminum with fins that seem to be the bugger.

2. Most are 2 quarts (1.8 liters) more than stock.

Mark, Fair point! Now that you mention it, I concurr.

billyj7175, Thanks for those details. That answers the first q's precisely. So 2 quarts extra...sounds like an apprx 20% increase in fluid volume. Not too shabby. Nothing to scoff at really. Better than nothing.

Clearence with the cross member is a concern I have had from the first thought. As I recall droping the pan the rear bolts are pain to loosen as it is. With the deeper pan I am thinking that issue maybe worse. And then there is the cross member clearence full stop. Bit of a gamble really. Guess I'll know when I get it.

Thanks for the reply's.

I'm running a similar 2qt deeper steel pan and it fits the crossmember just fine. And I just threw the magnet in there in the same spot as the old one.

Could you snap a few pictures of any clearance issue areas? Im due for a filter and fluid so I was also thinking of going to a deeper pan for my th400
