Default !953 F-1 Pickup Oil Pan Difference

Would anyone know if a center sump oil pan on a flathead V-8 fit in a 1953 Ford F-1 without hitting anything? Usually the rear sump pan with the removable lower plate to clean the oil pump screen is used in the F-1 from 1948 to 1952 but with the change in the 53 truck design the oil pan I think is different.
Thanks Ron

My parts book lists the same pan for 48 - 53 trucks. Kind of surprising, really.

Thanks for the pictures Al that's the same oil pan on the motor I built if the 53 has similar clearance there should be no problem at all.
Ross I'm surprised the parts book lists the same pan for 48 to 53 but you never know
