aftermarket oil pans for 2F's??

OK - so after landing the rig on my oilpan a few dozen times, it's full of small cracks which leak pretty bad. Are there any decent aftermarket pans for 2F's? Preferrably something thicker, beefier, and with a lower profile for more ground clearance... Also - Anyone ever seen a 1-piece rubber oilpan gasket? No matter how much silicone I use, the cork gaskets always seem to leak around the rear...

Sounds like you need to build one. And you are definitely the one to test it!

I don't think you can make the pan any more shallow because of the room needed for the oil pump pickup. It's pretty close to the bottom of the pan as it is.

Toyota has a one piece cork gasket. The trick to sealing one is making sure the rail is straight and true, and to use "the right stuff" brand sealant at the bearing cap corners...

What he said ^

I have heard the Toyotas are teh best gasket, but not easy to get them to seal.

If we do find an aftermarket pan, I wonder if they would be any cheaper than factory anyway?

Mine was leaking at the plug, got a new one (w/ small drainplug) and the plug holds now! (just need to fix my crappy gasket install!)

What is the best for removing ultra-black from the pan?

Send a message via Yahoo to Coolerman
Wire wheel on a drill is what I have always used to remove old gasket material of any kind. Then use a hammer and an anvil or other good metal straight edge to straighten the pan edge and the dimples from the PO who tightned it down to 90 ft lbs...

Thanks Coolerman!
If this is the same Coolerman I think it is (from LCML), would you consider putting a link to your page in your signature? I just steered someone towards your page based on a question they were asking, but I can never remember your URL...

As far as gaskets are concern, the toyota one piece is the best one....no brainer . However, if you don't have the funds you can buy a cheap set. The trick for this 4 piece set is to train the gaskets in the round section of the oil pan from fallen off during installation. Wiegh them down over night so they will pre-form to the curvature of the pan...believe me it will esier to install. I have used both without any leaks. If can not find one(oilpan) I may have one somewhere.
