Default Re: Oil pan replacement

From putting the van on the lift to having the pan on the shop floor took 2 hours.

Cleaning everything and carefully putting all the bolts back in took 3.5 hours.

Also I should mention the new pan (customer provided) did not have threaded holes for the oil sensor. Part of the time was tapping these three holes for the M6 torx bolts. A fact I only realized after the pan was mounted on the vehicle. That alone was probably half an hour or so, mainly because I didn't have a bottoming tap (needed since the holes are pretty shallow) and had to make one from a regular tap with some bench grinder action.
