Oil Pan Patch

I have a hole in my oil pan... great. O.K., what are my options really. What happened is when I swapped in the trac bar bracket for my Dana 60 swap, the bolts on the bracket must have been too close. They are about 1/4 inch away from the pan. I guess when the engine torqued last night at the truck pulls, it caused the top bolt to puncture the pan. It's not a major hole but enough so the oil runs out steady. My first thought last night was to just weld the hole shut but it's impossible to get at with a welder. So my options are change the pan (read: pull motor) or maybe try JB Weld? what do you guys think? Thank you

Re: Oil Pan Patch

drain the oil, grind or sand the area around the hole and clean the area with some brake clean then use kitty hair figerglass, it comes in a can like bondo and all you do is add the hardener....but you should really just repace the pan

Re: Oil Pan Patch

I would like to pull the motor but if it's out, there's lots of stuff I would like to do to it and I can't afford to do that just yet... The patch would temporary

Re: Oil Pan Patch

Use a piece of sheet metal (tin can?)that covers the hole then JB weld the patch to the pan.
