Does anyone know a good diesel G guru in the Calgary, Alberta area?
Am I able to remove and replace the oil pan while it is in the vehicle? I have a very small oil seep and I need to change the oil anyways so figured now is a great time to reseal this. I was just wondering is this will be surfacing new issues with RMS?
Recently removed 617.952 oil pans
With body jacked and suspension hanging and sump removed there is enough clearance on my truck to get the upper pan out.
Now my engine sits on modified mounts (not syncro G's yet) I could pickup more space by removing oil pump adapter and screen.
However getting it back in with bead of sealant on top could prove messy and may compromise that bead.
I don't have auto tranny cooler lines to contend with either.
I have also added the crank seal (rope type)part number in one of my threads. Peach parts has reasonable.
