Super A oil pan

Postby jwmcd » Fri Mar 18, 2011 9:31 am

Will an oil pan from an "A" fit on a Super A? Did any Super A's come with an oil pan dip stick? Thanks, John

Pretty sure any will fit. The early Super A used a pipe plug for the oil pan drain, exactly like the straight A. Later Super A's used a hex head plug with a washer. That should be the only difference. I think there's a serial number break for the newer plug/pan but would have to look it up.

pan will fit, no prob

no dipstick on a super A, but an allis C circa 1941 had a dipstick, as did an oliver 60. both had spin on oil filters, ahead of their time.

Must have. My oil pan has the two petcock holes, but they have plugs in them.

Would have to research this but I believe the power units in the 113 size had a dipstick. If you look on the block, the "boss" is there for the dipstick and all you have to do is drill it out. Our 230 has a replacement block from a Super C (no dipstick) and when the mechanic installed it, he just drilled it for the dipstick original to the 230.

OK. Based on your replies, I replaced the super A pan with one from an A this morning and it did fit fine. The old damaged super A pan had a dipstick (in the pan, not the block) and petcocks. The dipstick looked good from the outside but from inside it was pretty obvious that it was a retrofit. FYI I was surprised to learn the local NAPA store had an oil pan gasket in stock. I almost did not ask.>>Thanks a lot for all your advice and help. >>John
