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.
