I think there is two different oil pans for the 7mge, one for the supra, one for the cressida. The one i have right now is a mid sump, and i was wondering if the other one is a rear sump, and which car it comes from. Also, what parts of the oil pump need to be changed to make changing the pan work?

There is a front sump, and a mid sump. I have seen a couple different types of oil pumps too. You want to use the one that has the detachable steel sump. THere is another with a non-detachable aluminum sump.

If you need a rear sump...well, I hope you have some mad fab skills Smile Oil pans are not easy to make. Problem is getting them 100% sealed. No pinholes are allowed. TIG welders are highly recommend for stuff like that.

Ok, so right now, i have a mid-sump, with the integrated aluminium pump. I am having issues right now cause its on an 85 runner, and i want to go x-over steering, and the only kits i can find now adays are high steer, which would put the arm right through my oil pan, anybody have any ideas on how to fix this?

hy-steer works just fine with the mid sump oil pan. are you sure yours isn't front sump.

The aluminum sump, is usually for the front sump.

Ok, after looking at the picture and the manual, i have determined that i do in fact, have the front sump oil pan/pump. What would I need, other than an oil pan, to swap out the ban to mid sump?

I got my Pan and Pump from a 7M-GTE from a Supra. I beleive all MKIII's are mid sump....

On the 7M, you also have to drill a new hole for the dip-stick

Try www.supraforums.com

Somebody there will have one for you....

You have to relocate the dipstick from the forward position to the center position.. You can see the spot on the block that is made for it, just drill a hole and your done....

Have not done it yet to mine, when I do, I will take pics...

I realize this thread is ancient, but I have to leave no stone unturned...am looking for a front-sump pan/pump/hardline from a cressida to use with my ifs swap...if you are still in this dilemma, I have a 7m from a supra that will be moving to my backyard in a few weeks, or if you have resolved it but not trashed the front sump setup, let me know...

Thanks
