Where can I buy a 230 oil pan?

What company sells repop/replacement oil pans that fit a 65 GMC w/ a 230? I can't find em anywhere.

When I tried (unsuccessfully) to address my oil leak, I discovered the old oil pan bolt holes had all been over torqued over the years and were concave. I tried to hammer em flat but don't think I did that good of a job. There were also a few dents, and it seemed like the pan was slightly twisted.

I am thinking this time I just pull the whole engine, but if I do that I want to replace the pan with one that has a better chance of sealing well.

Who sells them? I can't find one anywhere.

you might try emailing tom at 12bolt.com. he doesnt have anything listed but doesnt mean he doesnt have extra laying around.

Thanks I'll check that out. Anyone else know of anywhere? Seems like something that *someone* would be making.

I had a similar issue (rust hole in the pan) and couldn't find anyone selling a replacement. I ended up finding a seized early 70s 250 locally and swapped the pan and sump from the 250. The bolt pattern is the same, but the belly of the pan is a different shape, so you'll need the pan and the sump if you do this swap.

Re: Where can I buy a 230 oil pan?

I straighten those dimples with a i/4" screw or bolt with a socket and nut on the opposite side. I use Permatex silicone and some swear by the Right Stuff but it is more expensive.

I'll need to pull mine too for a re-ring and seal renew. Compression isn't bad and it runs good but doesn't smell so good. Valve seals or oil rings or combination of both? I have not seen it smoke after deceleration.

The 12bolt site has some used ones but says they could be rusty, dented, etc, and are well over $100, so I don't think I'll go that way just yet. Maybe mine is salvageable with some more work and more RTV.

Still hoping someone has found a place selling repops.

Here is a salvage yard that may have one.
