So I just got off the phone with the marina who inspected an oil leak on my boat. (1st mistake-not a mastercraft dealership). I was quoted over $1,200 to replace the oil pan. The mechanic attempted to explain the oil pan and that there was a leak between a steel block the is riveted to the oil pan and the pan itself where the dipstick goes in or something like that. Confusing I know. Bottom line I need to replace the oil pan supposedly. I am willing to do it myself if I have the right advice/tools. Can someone please direct me to a pertinent thread or comment if you have had similar issues? Thanks!

Need an engine lift. remove engine... replace pan...

replace engine align trans and shaft...

many folks have removed engine and replaced

You'll need to rent the hoist.

Take lot's of pictures before and after... it will be a pain... but it will save a bunch of doh.

Too_Tall here took his engine out last year... look at this thread.

There's two threads here where someone unbolted their engine, rotated it 90 degrees forward (on it's end) and replaced the pan from that position. Thread is not that old and I remember the results were successful...

Kyle, did a good walkthrough about changing oil pan without actually removing the engine from the boat, check it out...

Do it yourself or take it to TriLakes Marine, and see you at Buckeye Bash this August!

Could possibly drill out the rivets, separate the flange on the dipstick tube from the pan, make a gasket to fit between the two, and glue/screw/rivet back together. That is if you have access to it...
