Have a friend with an Allis 170 gas. It developed a bad oil leak at the front of the oil pan. I looked it all over and saw that the entire pan was visible from underneath if one removed the starter.

Removed the starter and all the bolts.

NOW, can't seem to get the pan loose. I rap on the sides with a rubber mallet, and have pounded on the sides with a hammer and block of wood....

Is there a better way to get this loose, or am I missing something?

Any ideas or suggestions welcome.

I would slide a flat-blade screw driver in and break the seal. Nice and easy.......should do the trick.

Thanks Steve, I will have to give it a try. I also did a search on the yesterday's tractors board. Someone there suggested running a putty knife around the edge as well.

Will have to be careful as to not bend the pan.

Will let you know what happened.

take a exacto knife and run it around the bead , somebody may have used silicon for a gasket at one time then use the screw driver like steve suggested , go easy and try not to bend the sealing flange, you can straighten them some and use silicon gasket material if you do, best to go easy though.

as someone who knows next to nothing about tractors, I do have an old JD 1010 and found out that nothing on that tractor but the valve cover was sheet steel. That pan is thick cast iron, so figured they all are that way. Guess you got to be careful what you run over on one of those tinny ones.

look for some more bolts before you get too carried away with getting it down.Especially if the pan is cast iron. Look ay the ends where the crankshaft comes out.

Like I said before Toolman.I learned everything the hard way.You never forget your mistakes. Hidden bolts.Look inside a Perkins diesel.Two at the rear main cap are hidden.
