Default Oil Pan

I am working on a 1930 Model A tudor sedan motor. My question is does the inspection pan to the fly wheel go on first or the oil pan first? They both came down together so I could not tell when taking it a part.

Your just going to try and see how much room you have. With the engine in the car it's hard to put the engine pan up in place because it wants to drag on the head of the bolts holding the plate. Its also kind of tricky to get the bolts started with the pan up in place.
With the engine out of the car it doesn't matter what order you put them together and it's much simpler to do.

This maybe why they came down together when I removed the oil pan.

I have done it both ways. I have removed and installed pans with the inspection cover in place. It can be tight sometimes but is totally doable. It is easier and quicker to put the inspection cover on as it is easier to navigate putting in the 2 upper 1/4 fine thread cap bolts but it can be done either way. Of course the cork gasket should be replaced if the pan is removed.

I always use a little RTV at the rear corner tabs to help seal from leaks.

Tuesday we will give it a shot. I will soak the rope on Monday so it is ready to be installed.

If you have a ratcheting box wrench , it’s easy to do the inspection plate last. The middle bolt is the hard one, an the ratchet box makes it easy.
