Going through my new Farmall, what's the easiest way to remove the oil pan from the tractor? Thanks!

Drain the used oil, then remove the bolts that attach it to the block. The ones at the rear are difficult, a universal socket makes it a little easier. I prefer to leave a couple of bolts on each side loose the tap and pry around the edges until the gasket turns loose. You will need a new gasket and maybe gasket sealer to hold the new gasket in place to reattach it to the block. A tip I learned: After the gasket is in place, use sewing thread or dental floss to tie the gasket through the bolt holes to the pan to keep the gasket from slipping out of place. When the bolts are tightened, the thread will compress into the gasket and you can cut the remainder off with a razor knife.

A caution about those bolts at the rear - they attach to aluminum, be careful not to over-tighten.
If only Mrs. Hoyt and Mrs. Clagwell had gotten along...
