    I looked yesterday for one and all I have is one for a 1600 with the external dip stick tube.
    Got me wondering, can the tube be removed, weld over the hole, and then use on a 1725? Or just leave the tube in place with the old dip stick? Has anyone done this?

    Eric... Dont the 3 main and 5 main blocks have slightly different bolt patterns on the sump? I recall the gasket sets being different?

    I seem to recall that the pan rails on the 1725 block are wider apart than the rails for a three main block. Also, the baffle design in the three main pan needs some modification to accommodate the 1725 pump. There may also be a difference in the radius to seal the main bearing caps.

    The sump baffles are definitely different due to the change in pickup and pipes from the 3 vs 5 main pump... But they are easily modified with some tin snips...

    It was just a wild idea I had-now I see that it is not as easy as I thought! And you would have to have a pan from each to compare and to modify.....
