OIl Pan Replacement

Hi,

I have a 97 F250. I have the trans, down pipe and flywheel out. Can the oil pan be replaced with out removing the motor. I have received mixed responses. Has anyone been there-done that?

Thanks

Not done really good. Need to pull it to flip it upside down and let the RTV sealant set really really good.

There may be one or two people who claim they wrestled a paper seal in without removing the motor but the results are not good. To do it right you need to pull the engine and put it upside down on a stand. My oil pan seal leaks at the front but it's not enough to warrant pulling my motor. Good luck!

Well said.

The motor needs to come out because of the oil pickup tube, and front cover.

I have seen guys use some heavy duty epoxy to hold a fiberglass shell over the bottom of the pan to repair the rusted areas. It seems to be pretty permanent.
