  • Oil Pan flanges

    Any suggestions for (simple) straightening method or leveling out the oil pan flanges (mating surfaces to block) ?

    A 1/2" diameter brass or aluminum rod and hammer. Lay the lip on a solid edge, such as the edge of a solid work table.

      You can also scuff them, upside down, on a cement floor, to see WHERE they need straightening! (TIP# 193)

        Oil Pan Shield
        by plyfor
        Snyder's catalogue shows an oil pan shield that is noted in the Service Bulletins. Has anyone installed one of these and/ or is it needed ? How is it secured, and could it be modified to fit in an older oil pan ?

        Oil Pan installation
        by JohnB15632
        Good Morning,

        Can someone help me with information on installing the oil pan. When installing the oil pan, does the oil pump pass through the opening in the shelf? Does the spring come to rest on the pan itself? Resting right around the drain plug hole?

        Or, do I have the shelf installed backwards?

        Oil Pan Repair
        by dmaxweb
        I have an oil pan with a row of small holes. I took it to a welder and it blew out right away. They recommended brazing it. I told them I'd think about it and picked it up. The pan has quite a bit of pitting on the outside but no other holes (yet). My thought is to just find another pan. How difficult is it to find a nice one?

        Recommendations for cleaning oil sludge
        by getgood
        1st time changing the oil today - saw there was some sludge build up in the bottom of the oil plug. Also saw some build up on the oil fill port as well.

        Ordered a kit for the oil pan gasket and will plan on dropping to clean next..

        My question is would you use some sort of engine cleaner based on observed sludge prior to dropping the pan?
        Or simply drop the pan to inspect?...

        Cheap Oil Pan with Dipper Tray
        by Tom Wesenberg
        Just saw this on ebay, and he has 3 oil pans for only $10 each. It's a good buy if you live close enough to pick it up in person.

        Oil Leak
        by Ray Sullivent
        I have a minor oil leak with the bottom of the oil pan and blow back having a thin film of oil. I recently changed the oil and the oil level is normal. Should I torque the oil pan bolts and/or replace the oil pan gasket?

        The spinning oil pan bolt problem
        by Great Lakes Greg
        A friend bought his first Model A, and ran into the spinning oil plug issue. I haven't ran into this before on my cars, so I really didn't have a solution aside from dropping the pan and doing a couple of spot welds on the inside. The car is pretty oily underneath, so no heat while the pan is on the car, although catching the car on fire would be one alternative. Do I have the correct r...

        Suck it out or let it drip - - oil change
        by Bikerider58
        Sludge in the bottom of the pan is common due to non-detergent oil. If 10 years of non-detergent and 10+ modern detergent oil and engine build; then it seems like the sludge would be cleaned out. I still had a good layer of about 3/8 inch.

        I did not check when the pan was off, but suspect a good amount of oil is in the pan below the drain hole. With the engine tilt it seems like there...
