I have two NOS splasher/dipper oil pans that I that the tags are missing.

Both have appear dentical with two exceptions"

a. #1 has the drain at the rear while #2 has it at the side.

b. #1 has a distribution line system that feed sthree troughs from two connections from the main pump line while #2 feeds each of the six troughs fromits own connection from the single main line.

c. A curved "U" shaped piece serves as the bafflels (2) in #1. #2 has two indifidual bafflels.

I think I've read one of Genes posts that mentioned something about the differences but don't remember what he wrote.

#1 sounds like a 1937-1939. If the front lower part is slightly boxed it is a 1935-1936.
#2 is a 1940-1952.
A picture of the front lower out side of #1 would help.

I wish I could post a picture but, alas, that is nearly impossible. At least for me.

I wish it was easy to do but it is not.

Thanks for the information.

Gene: My 47 has the drain plug at the rear of the pan. Charlie said #2 had the drain on the side unless I misread something.

I re-read Charlies post and just to re-define my probably incorrect answer with not refering t #1 and #2....yes, the 1937-1939 pan has the side drain plug and 1940 and up has the plug rear center.
