The difference between this pan and other cheaper models is the drain plug and baffle. The Canton pan has a drain plug bung that is tig welded with copper washer and magnetic drain plug. The reason for this is to drain ALL the oil from the oil pan. The cheaper pans do not let approximately 1/2" of oil on the bottom to drain out because the drain plug nut is above the bottom of the pan. Factory pans were stamped with the drain area at the lowest point. The Canton pan allows all the oil to drain. The baffle on the cheaper pans is smaller and is spot welded to pan. I have had these spot welds crack and had oil leak from a new pan! Canton tig welds a larger baffle in place that controls oil better and no spot welds to crack.

These pans are approx 1" deeper in the front and early Pontiacs can have clearance issues with steering linkage and frames. These Pontiacs would include the 68 and earlier Full size cars and the 64-65 A body GTO and LeMans - yet will work with models. They fit in all the Firebirds and TA's and the 66 and newer GTO and Lemans' The pan can be dimpled in the front to clear obstructions.
