R&R Oil Pan and Pump
Permalink  
 


Now that the shop project is pretty well wrapped up, later this week I will be pulling the oil pan on the Biscayne to replace it with a correct B-Body big block pan.  Sadly I did not have the correct pan until after I had already installed my L72.  I also regretted not putting a fresh oil pump in when I had the chance, so I will do that now too.  I have the service manual and the guidance there seems straight forward.  I thought I would check with the considerable first hand knowledge here to see if anyone can offer their personal experience and and any tips or tricks to make the job easier.

Thanks!

HAVE FUN!

Bingo, already have one ready to go. I agree. And that's what is in there now as well.

I did this job on my old Buick Special with 350 Buick. It was pan gasket only. It took a lot of time due to the fact that wrench access for some of the bolts that are over the crossmember is really limited. Had to use open end wrench on the tip of a finger, getting like one degree of a turn before wrench hit something. I powered thru but it was a lot of time on that creeper basically hugging the crossmember with both arms to maneuver tools and bolts by feel.

Forgot to mention that I will be doing this on a lift. Service manual gives instruction on dropping the drag link by taking the idler arm loose and lifting the engine after draining the coolant, removing the lower hose, removing the fan and the distributor camp. After pulling the bolts out of the motor mounts, lift the motor (I will use a standing jack under the balancer) and put short pieces of 2x4 between the motor mounts and frame mounts. They even specify to put the timing mark at 6 o'clock to give the most clearance with the counter weights. I plan on getting this done in a day. But you know how the best laid plans of mice and men go, so there is extra time available.
