oil pick up/ pan question

I am replacing my oil pan in my '88 YJ (4.2L) I picked up a used oil pan and it is not deep enough by about 2 inches. Is the oil pick up for a CJ shorter than for the YJ? And will it fit into my motor?? Any ideas?? Desperate....

1. 1981-90 4.2L oil pumps are the same.
2. Something may be aftermarket?

Are you sure it's a CJ oil pan you've got? The oil pumps/pickups should be the same on an 80's CJ and early YJ.

Re: oil pick up/ pan question

Err ..I reread his post ....he didn't say that the used pan came from a CJ ...he just wondered if a CJ had a shorter pickup tube. Perhaps the pan is from a Hornet wagon with a 258 or something that had a shallower pan. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

So ....is this pan allegedly from a CJ??? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
