Specialty welding services......
This oil pan had struck an object in the road, doing severe damage to it. The pan is
made from an aluminium casting.
Still mounted on the vehicle, there was
a repair plate bolted on from a
previous repair. The damage would
most likely have been much worse had
the plate not been there....
Pan on the bench and the repair plate
removed to reveal the extensive
damage. The drain plug boss is nearly
completely broken off.
After cutting out all the broken
material.... Now for some new metal.
The bottom is now plated with 1/2"
plate on the lower leading edge and
3/8" plate on the upper section.
We also made a new drain plug
assembly as well and welded all of this
