Just wanting to share something. Before i mounted the oil pan i put on some magnets around the oil pick up. I do this to almost any vehicle when i need to get the oil pan of. The magnets i use can hold 5 to 6 kg each (11 to 13 lbs) i thought. I work with scissor lifts we install them in hydraulic tanks to. Great way to do diagnostics when you have engine trouble and ofcourse for atracting metal flakes.
Didnt know if anyone posted something like this already.
They sell oil pan bolts with magnets on ( summit racing ) them so you can monitor the engines internal wear and prevent metal particals from recirculating thru the engine
That is also the purpose of the oil filter
I have used the pan bolt since the late 60's
The bolt can be cleaned observed and replaced but magnets in the oil pan can only collect so much metal which cannot be observed until the pan comes down again
Still a reasonable preventative measure that will help
I also use the oil pan bolt. This is just an extra to ease my mind. Wish i was around in the 60's :-)..
