Title: Oil Pan Gasket
Post by: Mike on March 29, 2008, 10:16:14 AM
I have another job to do, this time it is replacing the oil pan gasket.
I have a question, do i have to lift the engine in order to remove the
pan. Or can I just slide it and manuver it and get it out of the way of
the cross member? Let me know, I would like to get this done asap.

Thanks, P

Yeah remove motor mounts, proably the exhaust from the manifolds, kick down linkage, loosen fan shroud...then jack the front of the motor up and the you can wiggle the pan out...sucks doing this in the car...better do the rear main seal while you have all this apart as well.

I dropped the steering linkage from the idler arms to help with clearance.Removed bolts out of motor mounts,and jacked up engine.
No need to remove the exhaust-I didnt.Mobby has duals anyways.
Remember the B/RB car pans are front sump.With the linkage dropped the pan will slide out no problem.You jack the motor to get to the front oil pan bolts,and clear the oil pickup when dropping the pan.Be sure to pull out the dipstick prior to the job.
You dont mess with the rear main seal in a 440 doing this job.Trust me.If it is not broke-don't fix it.Leave it till the motor needs to come out--unless it is really leaking.
Might as well add a windage tray while you are at it.Cheap and easy to do.It eliminates foaming of the oil,reduces drag on the crank and gain a few horses along the way.

The rear main seal is probably petrified, so it would be best to pull the motor if the seal is leaking.
 
What makes you think it's the oil pan leaking?

It is for B's car. Well he says he is leaking more oil than ussual,
which he might be from the looks of it when it sits for a day or two.
It is also a combo of the trans pan seal being shot. I can do the trans
pan gasket no problem. Since the engine has to be lifted that puts the
kie-baash on that. Add it to the list Steve.

Thinking about yarding the engine and trans on the 300 for some clean up work myself.....  I don't like oil leaks.

For all the trouble that has been, we may as well yank it and do the pan, seals, freeze plugs, timing chain and install a super duper motor mount all at once.  Clean it, paint it, make it look perdy
 

Then we can stand back and watch Mobby blow it all up. (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif) (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif) (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)

Sounds good to me Steve. I can take care of the trans gasket the rest
is for another session of HSM. Whenever you and we get time to do all
that work.

That's an overnighter.  Two days of hussling should do it.  But the Monster has to have all the parts ready to go.  I ain't bankrolling this operation.  I already own half the car.
 
We'd need a
Super Duper Anti-Size-13 Motor mount
Pan Set
Timing set
Rear Seal
Front trans seal  (Actually, I would rather not do this. . . )
exhaust flange gaskets
Mobby's first born and a case of Pepsi
 
If I have the 1/4 hung on the VOAB, we can move that out of the way. 
3 of us with Air tools and the hot wrench should have it out in a few hours.  Several hours cleaning and repairing.  Paint and drop it back in the next morning.  No need to take anything off the top.

some early christmas presents comming his way.
