see if you can get the state to reimburse you. ive heard of people getting money for bending/braking wheels and tires due to potholes. may take a while but worth a shot. If i were you i'd raise the car up a bit and get another pan. i wouldnt risk it with jb weld

Yeah. All I did was take it off and spray it down with some carb cleaner and wipe it down with a clean rag. Let it set, then installed it. Worked like a charm.

Yeah you actually can have the state reimburse you for it. but for what it's worth, grab the JB Weld and get to it.... Ive JB Welded a hole in a tranny casing and had it work just fine.. You just have to make sure that it is COMPLETELY dry..... Clean it off real good.

Yes. There is more info in the oil section in the FAQ (see my signature for the link). I posted pics in the "Type S Oil Pump Conversion K20a Euro R Accord Dipstick" one and explained the differences. The other threads in there are good too :up:
