The Ultimate-Clearance Front-Sump OM617 Oil Pan is a cost-effective way to gain all the clearance you should need for your OM617 swap without having to go to a full rear-sump conversion. This oil pan retains the factory 6 quart capacity. Installation of this pan requires modification of the oil pickup. You have the option to send your oil pickup to Doomsday Diesel to be modified or do the modification yourself. If you opt to modify the pickup yourself, you'll be sent a PDF of the required modifications after checkout.
Luckily, the dimensions of clearance required to fit the OM617 in a Toyota are nearly the same as a Jeep. The difference is the Jeep needs the front side clearanced; the Toyota needs the rear side clearanced. Because of the similar dimensions, it was possible to build a symmetric pan that could be flipped for Toyota or Jeep. What this means for you, as the customer, is the cost of both pans will be the same. Pans are built-to-order.
The Toyota pan was designed to go with the Doomsday Motor Mounts and Transmission Crossmember Bracket. It is absolutely necessary to run this oil pan if you intend to keep the A/C in your Toyota. This oil pan is also what makes it possible to retain the factory radiator and hood latch.
The pan is constructed with a 14ga stainless steel body and a 1/4" pickled and oiled mild steel flange.
This kit comes with an oil pan of your choice (Jeep pan coming soon), new drain bolt/washer, stainless hardware, and your choice of a modified oil pickup. Gasket not included. Typical lead-time for oil pickup modification is 3-4 weeks. Pans and pickups are given a 24-hr leak test before shipping.
If opting for Doomsday Diesel to modify your oil pickup, the pickup must be disassembled and thoroughly cleaned. There should be no visible oil left on the pickup. Be sure to send the spring, piston, and cap bolt with the pickup. The pickup will be machined and welded and must be spotless. There will be a $50 charge for cleaning the pickup if it is not clean enough. Instructions for shipping the pickup will be emailed after checkout.
