Oil pan question ?

Postby Rodney51Cub » Mon May 22, 2023 7:26 pm

Has anyone turned their oil pan around so the drain plug is on the left side of the tractor ? I was looking at doing this because I can not get a drain pan to set on the BH 412 mower deck because of the lift arm. I either hold the drain pan up near the oil pan until it slows to a drip or some other contraption to direct the oil to the drain pan. The only draw back I see is I will not be able to use the front tool bar mount. This is really not a problem since I am putting the sickle mower on the 49 Cub. It will make putting the back three bolts in easier. The reason for pulling the pan is to repaint it.

I don't think it's possible due to contour. Just use a cardboard deflector/funnel.

Oil pump filter hangs down in the rear of the oil pan.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Hi,
If the oil pan is sealed well, and doesn't leak at the gasket, I would paint it without removing it from the Cub. :)

I already have it removed. It was put on 26 years ago and had started to seep.

I will have to look at the oil pickup screen again, I though it was more in the middle of the pan.

If it's off just twist it around and hold it to the block. If there's not clearance something will hit. Bolt it up with a few bolts if it will even snug up. If everything else allows it, spin the cran by hand slowly, it may hit it. But I doubt it would fit.

I think the oil pick-up tube will be the problem.

Eugene and Gary are correct the oil pickup tube is in the way at the back end of the block.

On to plan C.
