  • Cheap Oil Pan with Dipper Tray

    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.

    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...

    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...

    What do you do when it's -50º
    by DaWizard
    Since I don't know the answer to this, I have to ask.

    What do you do for coolant when it's -50º like it was last night in the upper mid west?

    I was watching the weather and saw temps that were dipping way down into the low 50's and wondered what you guys do since 50/50 doesn't work that low.

    Did not know this could happen

    Dropped the oil pan today as a part of getting Eleanor back on the road. The pan was better than expected but the oil pump screen was horrendous. Somebody cleaned the pan and forgot all about the oil pump.

    Oil clean up.
    by Bob Giles
    Wouldn't it be nice if you could use a water soluble lubricant in the Model A crank case.
