Removing Model A Oil Pan Baffle/Dipper Pan & Cleaning

I’ve had a good read and check on the forums about how to remove the oil pan baffle on the Model A. This is the method I chose, maybe not the best, but it worked OK for me 🙂

Video here:

 

As you can see there was plenty of sludge under the baffle!

I used a combination of 3-1 Heavy Duty Cleaner Degreaser ,soap and water and a pressure cleaner. Might give it a final wash with paraffin to finish it off. Also removed the old rope and cork seals and scraped the old gasket material from the oil pan & block surfaces.
