Unhappy Stripped my oil pan thread Qusetion???? - June 11, 2008, 11:34 PM

Hello All,
I stripped my oil pan threading two weeks ago and just ordered a oil pan. I wanted to know, do I also have to change the oil pan gasket as well and are there any other things that will need to be replaced? I also noticed that I am going to either have to remove the rear of exhaust or from the header area, do you know which one is best practice? It doesn't seem that the oil pan will be able to come off without removing the exhaust/header. Any information is much appreciated.
Thank You

yes get a new gasket. as for removing it take off the rear part but you might have more room with the whole exhaust gone

What dodge said. Always replace gaskets and o-rings when you take things apart. It's easier and cheaper than dealing with an oil leak later. Don't take the header off unless you have to. Prepare to take it off though, before you start, in case you end up having to.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

Did you try the self tapping drain plug for it?? Cheaper and faster. However keep in mind it is a one shot one kill deal .. if the self tap doesn't work you gotta get a new pan ... which you'll have anyway.

Well you see, Norm, itís like thisÖA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

the champagne cork I use doesn't need any washer

but you gotta finish the bottle before you hammer it in the pan, it makes it a lot easier
