Try snugging up the pan bolts. My working Cub has a seep along the oil pan gasket. Far as I'm concerned, for my Cub it is nothing to worry about.I have a slight oil sweat/leak all along where the oil pan is bolted to the block.
Simple task. You will need a small socket, extension and perhaps a swivel, to reach the bolts at the back of the pan.(1) Is it a fairly simple job to take off the pan and put on a new seal?
Cork. If you don't want a seep and are not particular you could use RTV sealant.(2) What kind of seal is it?
The seal is a single piece of material and pretty good size. Short answer is you could, but probably not.(3) Could I make one myself?
Grade and brand of oil is up to the Cub owner.I intend to put in 10 - 40 multigrade engine oil.
If you are talking about the oil pan gasket replacement - no explanation needed.Can anyone help out with info or a step by step guide would be much appreciated.
The drain pipe may be plugged. No problem just lift the oil filter, most of the oil will have drained into the oil pan. You can take a long screwdriver to clean out the drain on the oil filter housing.Buzzard Wing wrote:On the oil filter housing, yes.... drain the pipe first. Take a look inside after you get the filter out and if there is any crud at all, put the long bolt back in (keeps the crud out of the engine) and flush with kero or diesel, drain through that pipe.

It is not unusual to find the oil filter drain pipe plugged, because many people do not realize it is there. On the first cub I bought, over 25 years ago the oil pan drain was also plugged. Needless to say, that one needed a lot of work to make a good tractor out of it. I still have it and did the second complete refurbish on it about 2 years ago.Eugene wrote:........The drain pipe may be plugged.
