As you would expect on a 37 year old motorcycle the outside and inside of the engine oil pan were quite a mess.
Here are a couple of pictures from when the oil pan was removed from the engine.
I soaked the oil pan for a while in the Berryman’s parts cleaner. It did a pretty good job of getting the old gasket and grime off of the oil pan. With a little more cleaning it was ready to go for painting.
One additional thing I took care of before reinstalling the oil pan was to remove and clean the oil sump filter. This was probably about 50% clogged with just as much sludge as was seen in the oil pan.
With the oil sump filter reinstalled and a new gasket the oil pan was ready to be installed to the crankcase.
Now I can flip the engine back over and get started on the top half of the engine.
