Just for a change the wind and rain subsided for the evening, so the oil pan and associated parts got cleaned. Went old school and used paraffin which took me back to the old days somewhat 🙂
With some good weather over the Easter weekend I can hopefully give everything a final clean, paint and refit.
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 🙂
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.
