Rusted out oil pan 6.0 ???
Hey Guys, quick question after just replacing both rear backing plates , rotors from being rotted out to dust thought i would look around a bit under the truck , up here in New england we have been getting killed with the new liquid de icer crap they use on the road it is eating our trucks alive, anyhow the oil pan is getting pretty crusty the past couple of years i have been smearing grease and oil on it trying to slow down the rusting process its not leaking yet but the flakes i took off were pretty thick and im concerened ,
I have read in certain posts that you can get the pan out from the chassis without removing the engine is this true , it is an 04 f350 4x4 dump truck . I am a former 15 year GM tech so i have mechanical experience just wanted to know what type of job it is and if its worth doing in my driveway on my back or pony up and let ford do it , also does anyone know the ford book time on this job ,
