    There are a few posts about F-350 leaking oil pans on here, do a search to find them. I patched my F-350 diesel one with JB weld a couple of years ago and I plow and it's holding just fine. Also look up user Damian. He uses a marine adhesive and I believe, fibreglass covering. He's on youtube as well, and it shows the process. He sells the kits to do it yourself. This is all in the posts that you will find when you search.

    is there a hole in the pan, or is it just a leaking gasket??
