Adding an oil pan gasket change to the task list...leaking like a sieve at the back of the block...cleaned it up and let it sit overnight so the leaks would show themselves...two pretty good steady streams at the bottom.

Toasted!



Might as well add a new catalytic converter, motor mounts, and coolant flush as the engine has to be drained and raised about 2.5" to get the pan out, according to the Ford shop manual. While everything is out of the way, probably should take care of the exhaust manifold, too. Certainly won't be bored for a while.
