You want the engine to be level forward to back and side to side for best
fuel distribution.  I'm wondering just how far off horizontal the pan is?
Do you have a protractor to measure the angle.

I have a V-8 in my AD and the engine/trans are level.   Are you sticking
with the stock steering and axle?
