Yea, the original plan when I noticed the leak was to apply J.B. weld to the problem area, which I assume is a similar product to "The Right Stuff." When I crawled under my truck the second time I noticed it was dented in several spots, the oil drain plug was stripped and oil was leaking there, and it was rusting in three major spots from the outside in. I started to clean it up with a wire brush, but I found more rust spots and more dents and I determined the pan was non-repairable. Frustrated, I called around to Auto Zone, Adance Auto Parts, NAPA and the local dealer. In contrast to my original thinking, the local Ford dealer was the only place that stocked it AND it was the cheapest price! $83.99, and I bought a Fel-Pro one piece gasket from Auto Zone for $23.99, as well as CNC Brake-Clean to clean the mating surface. The gasket came with these nice keepers that hold the pan and gasket a half inch away from the mating surface, and keeps everything in line, then you snug the other bolts in and take out the keepers, and replace them with the bolts. We had to jack the engine up about 4 or 5 inches to get enough clearane. Overall it took about two days because I've never worked on a Ford before. It was a moderate project, but if I can do it, anyone can do it!
