Angry Oil Pan Rot

Well so I have hurd that the 7.3 was notorious for oil pan rot but i didnt think that it was so involved. I wish they had a better way to change the pan other than removing the engine. Stupid design huh?

i think some here have used POR 15 (i think) to give a little longer life to a rotted pan, if it isn't rotted all the way thru........

God bless ford engineers, cuz lots of us have cursed them many times.......

Along as the gasket is ok, I can see myself doing whatever I could to keep from pulling the engine!

Wonder if a "partial pull" would make enough clearance to get a gasket in there? Just disconnect enough to raise the engine a few inches? That's still a lot of work, but less than taking it all the way out!!

thats true but what was comming out by the gasket was thin so it hard to say how bad it was leaking from there

You can't just pull it halfway.. in order to pull it halfway you gotta prepare it to be pulled all the way... so just pull it all the way out.

Yeah, Mines coming out in a few months for the pan. But hey, we'll be doing a few other things while she's out too, so no biggie. LOL

That is not from the POR-15 not working, that is from poor prep. Guy must not have cleaned the oil and/or grease before applying it.

I just put it on my pan which was pitted, but not totally shot. Wire brush, make sure it is super clean, slap some POR-15 on it. Will I eventually have to change the pan? Probably, but not for quite a while. I have used POR-15 many times in the past for various needs and I can assure you that the stuff is as hard as a rock and adheres very well when done properly.
