    oil pan and bigger cubes

    Hey I drove through a lake of a puddle yesterday morning and hydrolocked my engine snapped atleast 2 rods and shattered the oil pan.

    Insurance adjuster is coming to my house this morning and cutting me a check for a new (used) motor and swap time.

    The oil pan has a hole big enough to put my fist in in the rear flat middle part that's right infront of the trans... I have all the pieces, and was wondering if this can be welded back together or if its trash. If trash, anyone know the best place to find one?

    Now comes the rest of the motor... Looking for build options, my cam (238/242 .595/.595 112 lsa), ported/polished and milled heads, melling hv oil pump and double roller timing set are all still in great shape (finished this build less than a month ago) and would like to reuse these parts in a stroker (maybe 408) short block.

    Any opinions?

    Ouch been there done that. Only mine came out the side of the block. Still started and pulled itself outta godzilla puddle and on to the rollback though on 5 cylinders.

    On the welding , why try. if you are going to spend money on all the other parts why risk it with the oil pan. Replace it.

    Figured I'd ask about the welding (I know and am good with steel, but knew nothing about cast aluminum). One of my good friends I trust already advised me not to bother trying to get it welded so that option is out and am loking for a new pan

    Would you put duct tape on a used condom?

    I didn't think so, get a new oil pan.

    Search used! I just google searched it and found some for half that. If at all possible, dont buy parts from dealerships There not there to give you a good deal.

    Oh I know, I have one on my watch list in ebay right now, but knowing the price of a new part gives you an idea of what is a good/bad deal when shopping for used

    Have you tried Cleveland Pick-a-Part for a pan?

    I just missed one for $230 on ebay.

    It been years since I've dealt with Cleveland pick a part... I forgot all about them, I'll have to give them a call.
    Thanks!
