300 TDI oil pan needed...

Anyone have a good 300tdi oil pan they would be willing to sell? My oil pan threads were slightly messed up so I thought I would gently run a tap in and chase them out. Some how I couldn't get the tap to start right and ended up messing up the threads. I have a time-sert kit that I can try and use but thought I would check if anyone had one to spare before I tried that.

thanks
Craig

Craig, I had a similar issue on one of my 300 tdi motors. Use a whole saw and drill out entire drain plug. You can get weldable drain plugs at NAPA for a few bucks. Just weld a new one in and you are good to go.

That is all great information. Makes me less worried about messing mind up if I can weld in a new one.

I will keep that new one in mind in case I mess this one up.

Again thanks for the responses.

mine were stripped. the plug would just spin and spin

used a helicoil kit. way easier and cheaper than new or changing the pan.

Just make sure you get the right thread. Its either metric something or BSP of some kind. It isn't NPT

edit: quick search says it is 1/4 BSP. It's one thread per inch difference from 1/4" NPT.
