dropping oil pan - 1955 Dodge


Recommended Posts

Anyone know what the easiest procedure to drop the oil pan on a '55 Dodge?  Probably similar to other makes during these years.  The steering linkage is in the way.  Do you have to remove the steering linkage?  Maybe remove the tie rod ends from each wheel?  Seems like a little bit of a pain.  I need to clean sludge out of the pan and install a new gasket.  Thanks in advance.

Yeah.  Good point.  I did find the paragraph.  It says to disconnect the linkage from the idler arm bracket.  Thanks.  Should have done the research first.

Ooops. I MEANT to say idler arm. Sorry. I hadn't had any coffee, yet.
