Stainless 7.3 oil pan

So my oil pan is going downhill fast. Been looking around and can't seem to find one out there. So I have this small company that does welding and fabricating. They said they would make me one. Any idea how much a SS one would run if they are out there? I called auto zone and a new regular one is about $100ish. Any help would be awesome. The shop that is going to do mine said it would run $1600-1800 to do the job. That's a chunk of change to have to do again down the road. Any info would be great. Thanks guys!

Re: Stainless 7.3 oil pan

My plan if i have to replace mine is to coat it with bedliner like line-x. Probably a lot cheaper than stainless and shoukd last a long time.

Re: Stainless 7.3 oil pan

Just buy a new one. Scuff it and apply 3-4 coats of por15. I would think you could pull the motor a few times to get to the $1600 cost of a ss one.

Re: Stainless 7.3 oil pan

I'm saying the mechanic is charging $1600 labor to change the pan. Buy if I put a SS pan in I shouldn't have to change it again.

Re: Stainless 7.3 oil pan

The SS pan should run me a few hundred. Don't have a full $ on it yet, could be WAY less, they will only charge me material cost. I know these dudes pretty well...and they do a lot of work for our company, so it'd be a favor they are doing for me.

Re: Stainless 7.3 oil pan

That could very well be a possibility. What kind of price is good for something like that? If I proposed that to the guy after I get mine made, I wouldn't want to insult people with an insane price. He is a good dude, but I don't know what he would do them for. He is going to tig weld it for me

He told me he could make it out of thin stuff, like body steel thickness (can't remember what he called it) 1/8", 1/4" etc. Whatever I wanted

Re: Stainless 7.3 oil pan

$1600 to pull the engine and swap the pan? It sounds to me like you should find a different mechanic it is only an 8 to 10 hour job max.

Re: Stainless 7.3 oil pan

Looks like $1200...$1600 includes replacing transmission lines (bad shape) and trans fluid/filter replacement
