I have had an oil leak since owning my 1951 Dodge B3B, I have always assumed that it was from the drain plug. So I changed to a new plug but still the leak continued. So at the last oil change, I changed to a nylon washer in an attempt to stop the leak. But the leak continued. The leak is not catastrophic but is annoying. Of course I have maintained a drip pan on my shop floor to catch the leaks, but I still wanted to secure a solution. So yesterday in part due to current home confinement and the arrival of warm weather, I cleaned the exterior of the oil pan with degreaser and then using body powder, I powdered the pan in order to locate the source of the leak. While the oil primary drips to the ground from the drain plug, that is only because it is the lowest point on the oil pan. It is actually leaking from the dipstick connection on the side of the oil pan running down the side of the pan, and finally across the bottom of the pan to the drain plug. Since this connection point appears to be spot welded or riveted onto the oil pan, the most be a method to reseal the seam between the two pieces. So my question, Has anyone else experienced this issue? Has anybody found a viable solution? or Do I just the drip pan?
My Whole objective was to clean up the engine fix some leaks make a few little modifications and ultimately stop the truck from leaking oil on my garage floor I thought I was successful only to have noticed an oil leak ,nothing to do with the gaskets that I change but instead coming out through the side of the oil pan where the dipstick is welded into it ,
Hello, Been awhile since I posted. Starting to get back into my 47 plymouth project and had a couple questions. Doing the cavalier R/P install, what oil pans have people used to ensure clearance for a BB mopar (413)? I have a front and center sump available, but both look like they won't work with the R/P. For the rear, I am looking to get rid of the leaf springs and install a 4 link with either coilovers or airride. What kits are people using? The rear end is a 323 sure grip out of a 69 road runner. Any info or experience people have would be fantastic. Thank you in advance.
