I am working on an 8N 1952 with an unbearable leak coming from the front of the engine. I have disassembled to the status as shown in the picture. I turned out, the oil pan gasket around the front cover and governor was not installed correctly or fell out of place. I really donít want to remove the oil pan to replace both oil pan gaskets because it is not leaking any where else. Have never and want to avoid replacing an oil pan gasket without pulling the engine and assembling on an engine stand. Questions: Is it practical to just cut and fit a new oil pan gaskets and install the new cut gaskets only where needed? Is this a difficult maneuver installing oil pan with whole new gaskets in this position?
The tractor is in really good shape where compression on all cylinders is 90 to 100 psi, runs good except for the bad leak.
