Iíve seen a few chemical metal repairs on oil pans. Seems to work absolutely fine.





*note this is not my recommendation, just saying 👍

I still need to fix the oil pan on my Elite but simply don't have the time to do it (otherwise I would have whipped it off, ground out the rust and welded it up months ago)

My assumption is that any adhesive 'repair' (bodge) will have a hard time sticking to the oily surface of the oil pan :-\ if there is some magic formulation that disperses the oil to bond to the metal beneath then I would be interested to know about it.

I've no idea now how much the lower sump pan is, but when I last bought one years ago, it was £30 odd. Hardly worth the effort of repairing one ... just replace it.  :y

I probably need to get the sump of my crate judging by the way it rattles on startup. as the pickup must be damn near blocked or the oil pump is on its last legs. bloody heap of junk..

As said Iíve seen it and Iíve seen them not leak. Not saying Iíd do that.

Plus note some oil pans are not easy to remove. Would I do that if my oil pan was a ten year job. Possibly. Thatís all Iím saying 👍

My tractor sump had chemical metal to rebuild the sump plug area (which was also helicoiled by that DTM chap), due to BMW specifying monkey metal...
