Affordable Oil Drain Pan for 7.3
Going to be time for my first oil change on "Big Hips", my new 7.3, pretty soon. I'm trying to find a reletively cheap oil drain pan that will hold all 15 qts of oil with a bit to spare, and more importantly has a big enough vent to handle the rate of flow of all that oil coming out. The one oil change I did on my 6.0 resulted in a lot of hot oil spilling on the lawn and a nice circle of dead grass, using a 15 qt blitz pan like this one - http://www.amazon.com/Blitz-11838-Oil-Drain-Pan/dp/B000AMGYNAThe 7.3 drain plug looks about the same size as the 6.0, so I expect the flow to be fast and furious. What do you guys use? Northern Tool has several big, fancy shop models but I'm not looking to spend $300!!!
