    i am a Dodge Fan without enough money to own one (65 Hemi Dart)

    Look I have been here done that
    oil pan in the car project
    much more difficult than u guys are letting on

    I will adjust valves, change oil, change plugs,
    and start engine, if it doesnt come apart
    i will use K&W stop leak on head gasket leak
    will take for test drive and beat it
    if it survives it goes on HRPT 11

    Or i may go and buy a Dodge Challenger, Ford Mustrang/Chevolet Camaro and drive with a warrenty
    or drive the WIFES CAR with a 100 NOS Shot

    PS: if i didn't need to work each day, sleep and wasnt 66 years old
    this would be done all ready
    i miss U FREAKS

    i did find a perfect 67 Nova 4 door, 6 auto for $1500, that could make the tour

    Now there's the boob we all know and love!

      Does the gear happen to be steel?

      If so, a heavy magnet on the outside of the pan will likely keep it in place, as far from the pickup as you can manage. Just a thought from a hack....
      Of all the paths you take in life - make sure a few of them are dirt.

        the gear i believe is made of a material called Peek (Comp Cams Gear)
        non magnetic (darn it)
        i am not bad mouthing the Peek material, no wear signs on gear (+-10,000 miles)
        i think loose SCREW jammed up rotor and cap after car stopped because of rotor tip being broke off
        and when tried to restart gear broke

          Peek is a pretty hard plastic, usually filled with glass fiber. But it is plastic. Your plan sounds good... Maybe replace the Peek gear with a bronze gear (steel cam?) to avoid this in the future. Wish power tour wasnt so dang far away this year...

                            I had a rocker stud break one time and when it did it some how poped the inside's of the lifter out,so I put a new stud and lifter in drove and raced the car for 3 more years.Then when rebuilding it and pulled the pan there was the plunger,spring and retainer still laying in the pan after all that time.
