Maybe I missed something but why do you need to modify your cases for shovel cylinders? They should just bolt on. For a Pan lower you will have to make an oil line to feed the shovel rocker boxes. A good place to get oil from if you don't have 63 - 65 cases is the oil pump pressure sending unit hole. You can get a brass Tee fitting, etc., and some steel brake line from the auto parts and make up everything you need basically with a hacksaw and a wrench or two, and still have an operable sending unit. This assumes you have a stock pan cast iron oil pump.
O.K., yeah, I left out the part about the STD Pan heads.
The return in the cylinders has been lowered, because of the stroker pistons.
And the oil pump is a Shovel with Evo innards.
With my old cam cover I drilled and taped off the top of the rear of the cover, and ran a braided s/s Shovel feed line to the rear rocker box. It was a tight as a banjo string, but it worked !
But that was when it was a Chubble.
Now going back to a Pan, and later cases.
And doing my best not make this as had as Chinese arithmetic !
