Im back again with my 1970 Shuster, Im starting to see a little oil in the bilge under the motor, I think my oil pan may be rusting out. The oil pan had to be patched and welded and painted 3 years ago when I rebuilt the motor, but I think its leaking. I going to pull the Exhaust Headers off so I can inspect it, but what i can feel is paint coming off, and I bet its coming off in more bad areas. The machine shop that rebuilt the motor said they couldnt find an oil pan at the time, but marine stuff was not their specialty, so we did a nice job patching it. But salt water is salt water. Anyone know where to find one, I think this pan had special baffles in it. Its on a 1970 Hardin Marine 454 BBC.
