Got RUST...???

Hey guys, I've got the typical rusted 7.3L Oil Pan. Its not leaking....yet, but it's crusty and has got some good skin cancer going! My question is, have you guys or gals replaced the pan before and how big of a job is it. Or should I hand the job over to the diesel shop and pay my way out?? Let me know you opinions and experiences with this topic!

Pull motor, flip, pull oil pan, prepare mating surfaces, put special adhesive on, replace pan, let sit for 24 hours, replace motor.

Big job... try to patch it up as it is now...

You might get away w/ fiberglassing it, or bedliner over it. Grind it down to the metal do apply.

yea, I dont doubt I would be able to handle the project, it may be time consuming but I have all the tools I would need as well as a wrecker to yank the motor and put it back in. I just think I need to dedicated a weekend to doing the job and knock it out!

yeah its a long process that requires a lot of taking stuff apart....you might try cleaning it up with some kind of sander, air disc sander, etc.....then use castrol super clean to get all of the greasyness off, then use paint.......if you look on Eastwood's websit, they have a rust encapsiltator paint that seals old rust and prevents new.....thats my suggestion
