Show cars 409 oil pan


Well Known Member
Question. Just had my engine rebuilt from a rebuttable builder. Engine is on a rolling stand on Garett floor. Came out this morning to find a half dime sized puddle of oil in rear of pan. It is a show cars piece. Has anyone had this same problem and if so how did you relieve said problem? Was getting ready to put engine back in car today. Don’t want to do it with a leaky pan. Your information is greatly appreciated.

I always put a small bead of sealer on the rubber end seal. Don't recall ever having a leak. Never tried an aftermarket pan though.
