Oil Pan on 1999 B3000 Troy Lee
This is my first post here so let me start by saying howdy to everyone.
Like the title says I have a leak at the back of the engine. It s either the pan or the main seal. I know that the rear seal requires removing the transmission and that most folks here have ended up either raising or pulling the engine to do the pan gasket.
In case your not familliar with the Troy Lee version, it has a torsion bar front suspension and sits somewhat higher than the other models. Anyway, just from looking at it, it looks like the pan will drop straight out. There is nothing really in the way. I had read a couple of posts by people who have the later edge models (with the torsion bar suspension) where it was mentioned that the pan comes out fairly easily.
Where exactly is the obstruction on the ranger? Any comments would be appreciated.
