Anyone who has done there oil pan

Ok its been about tiem for mine for a year now but i keep pushing it off. After i am done with my fall clean ups (landscaper) I am going to attempt it. I was wondering why i need to pull the motor? had anyone lifted it enough to put the new pan on? I read there is a sealant i need to use this i why i need to pull the motr? Where did you get your oil pan from and how hard it this? Thanks for any help you can give me.
-Chris

Ive heard that you can do it with the motor the bay of the truck. But you will still have to lift it up a great deal to get the clearances.

i would definitely use a high temp rtv silicone on the corners and at the top of the semi circle (at the rear of the motor)

Anybody who has done it without completely pulling the motor has always said that the next time they do it, they're pulling the motor.

there is 3 ways to do this

1 pull the motor

2 drop tranny and lossen motor mounts and jack back of motor.

3 cut the cross member and weld back in.


3 is cheap and quick if you can find some one willing and able. you will be buying your inspections for the rest of the trucks life. if its a work truck that your going to drive into the ground who cares.

2 is the best option is you have low mileage or high mileage and already rebuilt the motor.

well 1 is the option if your motor needs work

rihno line is a great idea...the sealant is rtv with some sort of additive....regular rtv may fail after a few years. its like 25 at the ford dealer...also the after market pan is not always a good fit ...ford rapes you for the theres but it fits perfect.

if leak is small just jb weld it i did its holding.

Good luck getting it clean enough to not leak in chassis. I've done 2 of them at home. Both mine and a friend's but I had to do his over cause I didn't get enough silicone in the back corner. I removed both of them and that's by far the best way to do it. I would rather do it once and take a little more time to do it the right way than to have to do it twice.

Im going to be doing mine at the end of next week, if you havent done yours by then I'll post and let you know how it went. Im pulling the motor, for two reasons, to do the pan right, and one of my up pipe bolts rusted through so I have an annoying exhaust leak. Hopefully all goes well, and good luck with yours
