Default Oil Leak

Noticed the last few times I've had the dozer out that it's developed an oil leak. A quick first look and I thought maybe a front crank seal. Well I finally got around to a closer inspection and found it was not coming from the front seal but from the skid plate below the oil pan. Cribbed up the shovel and dropped the front skid plate to inspect the oil pan. Could not see anything obvious so I put in half a quart of oil. It immediately ran out 3 pin holes in the front of the pan. Had to drop the middle skid pan as well to access the rear oil pan bolts. Plan is to pull pan, clean it thoroughly, weld patch on pan and epoxy coat it before re-installing it with new gasket. Dozer is a 1964 international td 340 with drott 4-1 shovel.New oil pan gasket was 25 bucks and the labor is free so I'm getting off easy on this one.

Looks like it will work. Lot of work for a little oil.

It may not look like it from the picture but the oil pours out when it running. I shut it down to talk to a buddy that stopped by and had a big puddle under the machine.

Finally got the pan all cleaned up and ready for repair. Boy is it thin in spots. Have a light under the pan in the picture. Got it welded up today. Lots of smaller pin holes when I started wire wheeling.

Better keep an eyeball on it so you catch the next one. There will be more on something that thin.

Might be a good time to clad the pan with some thicker steel, or you may have to take it all down again in the near future.

Either that or replace it with a new pan if it is available.

I'm wondering if there is a product out there to coat the inside of the pan like they make for old gas tanks.
