Emergency, Need an Oil pan near Philly/Jersey.

Recommended Posts

I'm signed up for a track day on monday and scraped my oil pan loading onto the trailer. There is a pinhole leak, so I need to get it fixed.  Does anyone near philly/NJ have any hookups with the local dealers where I could get the part today/tomorrow early AM?

Jb weld makes an aluminium repair product... clean it very well and put it on

ATGATT... ATTATT, two acronyms I live by.

It is one of those things that I'm sure that might be fine, but on the track I can't risk it.   I really can't risk spraying oil on the track and cause a bunch of missed sessions, or worse cause a crash.  
My hope was someone might be able to really weld it, or better yet know a parts guy at a dealer that could do me a huge favor and grab a replacement tonight.  Unlikely, but I though it was worth a try.

In s pinch, drill thru the pinhole, tap the hole, then red loctite (or even JBW) a screw in place.
You'll need to to remove than pan so as to not get metal bits in the oil, but you'll be doing that anyway

I wouldn't risk an oil spill at the track. If you spill oil all over the track you could end up with a large clean up bill.

Welding or replacing is the way to go you can tap and plug in a pinch but I wouldn't do the track day if I were you. Some tracks charge a lot for a cleanup fee.

You may have luck checking an indie harley repair shop (especially vintage repair). Most experienced guys have repaired a few cracked cases or cooling fins in their day so this would be right up their alley.

Everything went braap.
