PSD oil pan needed.......

The first oil change on my (new to me) 2000 Excursion PSD went fine, except I noticed a lot of salt cancer on the oil pan from previous Ohio winters.

I'd rather fix this on my own terms than spill 14 quarts on a deserted hiway some day.

Anybody have a line on a junked 7.3 that still has an intact oil pan? Anybody know of an oil pan that's still roadworthy? Thanks!



Rick

I have a 4R100 trans pan, but no used engine pan. I will keep my eyes open though.

u might as well go and buy a new one. that way u know that it is in good shape. however it might be a good idea to buy the junk 7.3 for parts. extra hpop for possible future upgrades. just remeber that u gotta take the engine out

Paint it

I'm in the same boat with rust on the oil pan.
After some 'research', I think the best idea is to clean the pan well, and as long as there is no holes or the rust isn't too deep to use the 3 chemical system from POR 15 and put a topcoat of chassis black on top.
This is what I'm planning on doing.
Just wish I would have known about this and done it when it was new.
So for all you guys out there with NEW trucks, take heed and do it now!

I know I could look,

but will the engine need pulling to R&R the old pan? If so, what the the usual suspects to replace while I'm there? Engine mounts, etc? The X has 100K miles on it.

You can't just lift the motor your you will have oil leaks, you have to turn it over and clean it good... If your pans not bad, just coat it and be done, very costly and PIA to swap a pan out!

...turn the motor over to do it right? I don't think so!! ;-) While the cancer looks bad, looks like I'll hit it with naval jelly and coat with primer then undercoating.
Thanks for the warning, CSIPSD
