Oil pan bolts

Postby trekrider69 » Wed Apr 05, 2023 6:40 pm

I replaced the oil pan gasket for the first time today and had read all the threads about removing the three rear bolts. Using a 1/4" drive flex socket, getting them loose was not a problem, but trying to remove the outboard two completely with the socket did not work. Just get them loose with the socket and finish removing with your fingers.
Donny M posted in 2010 to cut a slot in the top of the two outboard bolt heads and use a screwdriver to get them in and tighten with the socket. Thank you Donny. After three tries I took his advice and cut the slots. Using my small screwdriver to take them up to the pan lip was so easy. Then finished the job with one complete turn of the socket.
Just another example of this forum saving a lot of time, effort, and words getting a job done.
Thanks again Donny.

Donny passed away several years ago, but had some great suggestions when working on Cubs, and had a few great Cubfests in Texas too.
