My 403 has no provisions for that tray to be mounted in it.

Don't worry about the plate. You have no way to attach it anyhow. Ive only ever seen it on blocks that are open in the center of the valley and you can see the camshaft.

So are you going with the turkey tray, or not? I'm leaning towards not, myself.

I dunno



I picked up 2 felpro trays from rockauto in the clearance section for 4 buxx each

They fit nicely and "lock" in.

But I have no idea yet

I have the mondello Windage tray in my SBO and felpro metal intake gaskets sealed with a good amount of RTV on my Edelbrock 7111 intake. The intake runners and coolant seem to seal awesome getting the front and rear to seal and not leak oil different story entirely.

Previously had the windage tray with fel pro fiber gaskets had vacuum leaks I could never find oil leaks and seeping coolant

First set up I had was a factory turkey tray and I believe I was able to seal that one I think

As a disclaimer though I am terrible at dealing gaskets it’s sad to say but I’m not sure I’ve ever had a dry gasket on the first shot one day though maybe
