Oil pan salvage

Postby Ken (48 Cub) » Thu May 06, 2004 8:57 am

First I cleaned up the oil pan with kerosene. Then put it in the elctro vat for a couple of days. Then I wire brushed it clean down to bare metal. The problem is that it is very pitted now. it even has a few pin holes all the way through mostly in the front slowp. Can I save it now? Will something like a gas tank sealer work on the inside? Or should I call JPs for another one?

Thanks,
Ken, Annie the '48 Cub & Marie the '57 Loboy.

You can probably fix the leaks any of several ways. I would expect the tank sealer to work (after all, it works for gas). JB Weld or any of several other epoxys sould be applied from the inside. You could probably braze it as well.

Replacing it may be less work but is probably mostly a question of cosmetics.

Jim's repaires will probably work quite well, but the way my luck goes I would probably get a replacement. Just my personal choice, nothing wrong with repairing it.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Ken, I have a pan you can have. I need to check it to see if it's better than yours. I can even get it at least halfway to you next Saturday and maybe right in your back yard if my brother-in-law from Shively is there. If you're interested, send me a PM or an e-mail.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

I have been wondering about the gas tank liner - it's a great product for gas tanks; but, oil gets about 200+ deg. and I was not sure about the elevated temperature.

I have a '79 Ford 4x4 with pin holes in the oil pan and replacement pans are almost impossible to find. If you do find one it's about $175 to $200 - Does anyone have any experience with trying to line an oil pan?

Thanks for any info.

Oscar, I would think that brazing would be more than acceptable if cosmetics are not an issue.

$20.00 for a decent oil pan. I'd be tempted to get this in lieu of patching.
