Differing Perkins 6.354 oil pans

There appear to be at least two different oil pan configurations for the 6.354. There is one that is confined mostly to within the foot print of the block, the one that appears in Perkins engine manuals. There is another configuration that extends about 1.5 to 2 inches to either side. I assume this one may have more capacity and be more tolerant of heeling.

We have had the wide configuration (two each) in our Gulfstar 44 motor cruiser. However, rebuilt replacement long blocks have arrived and have the narrower oil pan. Of those powerboat owners with 6.354s, which oil pan do you have?

We have the wider pan, use 15w40 (rotella t), and can do both engines with a single 5 gallon bucket with a little to spare.

I put 2.5 gallons in each per the PO.
I use Schaeffer 700 15-40
Seems to be fine.
