    I have never replaced a Detroit pan for rotting out. The series 60, etc. went to a fiber pan. Yes, if you do a search, the 7.3 oil pans rot out. Now I ain't busting here, but I thought you said your a diesel mechanic. This should be walk in the park for you. A cherry picker will pop the motor out. It ain't a 3406. Hone it, new rings, you have a valve grinder? Do the heads yourself. Slam it together, your on the road.
