Removing Oil Pan

Postby Redfred1 » Tue Apr 11, 2017 1:13 pm

Hello! I am new to tractors and cubs. I purchased a 1950 cub that has a pretty severe leaking oil pan gasket. I have most of the bolts out except behind the engine where the bell housing covers the bolts. Do I have to split this thing in half to remove the bolts or do I need another joint or two on my wrench?

Thanks!

As I recall, I had no issues with a 1/4" drive shallow well socket and a short extension.

As barnyard stated I like the 1/2" universal socket in 3/8 drive. Never tried the 1/4" drive but will next time. Be very careful to check for oil around rear main seal. I'm going to bet that is leaking as well and pan gasket won't help much. May be a good time to bite the bullet and split tractor and do it right, not twice. Don't ask how I know :surrender: Just a suggestion. Do a search as there are many good threads here on doing the job safe and correct.

Aviation gasket sealer on all surfaces will be your friend when you go back together.
