In order to remove the oil pan, do I need to take the long rods on each side of the engine off ?

Recently removed pan from my TE-20 by removing only one of the rods. Can't remeber if it was left or rite. HOWever, the last time i did it i removed BOTH rods. REmoving only one rod makes it much more difficult. Not worth it, just remove both of them.

When installing the rods be very careful not to overtorque bolts in trans. Trans is Aluminium and they strip very ez.

I figured so. Was hoping for a magic procedure. They look like a challenge with the rust and paint. Heat and PB Blaster on order. Thanks

Should u try to remove pan by removing only one strut rod then remove the right side. I'm trying to recall here. In my case the oil filter cannister INSIDE the oil pan was removed previously and the oil float kind of gerry rigged someway. SO if yours still has filter cannister then it mite be impossible to remove oil pan by only removing one strut rod.

I have a To-20 and a recent TE20. I am NOT impressed with the TE at all.

Heed my warning from above about that Al trans housing. Do not over
torque the bolts when reinstalling the strut rods.

Also cheque the front pivot bracket that bolts to the engine. Mine has a 1" x 1" square cut from it up near the rite side mounting bolts. TO20 does not. My pivot bracketr is cracked at the square cut out. I belive the square cut out is factory but i'm not sure.

Quite frankly, the TE 20 i have (not rusty at all and appears to have ben well maintaned) has a lot of very poor eng'ring that varies from my TO-20.

The AL transmission housing is probably the most brainless idea i've ever seen in my 40 years of wrenching on junk.

Two things with te20. First, check the pan where the filter removal housing contacts the pan. over time and use, the pan gets distorted there, and the housing gasket won"t seal. I"ve had to use a wood block from the inside of the pan to drive the pan surface back out and flat. also, if you are using gasket silicone, make sure that you put it far enough toward the outside of thesurface at the rear of the engine. the block has a narrow surface there so that a socket can be used to torque the rear main.
