Have you considered taking it to a hi quality welding facility? The source I use is sold out of them but judging from the picture it could be in the $300 range to replace. Perhaps a good shop could straighten it out without a much larger expense. Good luck. dave

If you decide to call around you want to tell them it's cast aluminum (which is a guess on my behalf). That's what it looks like anyway. They would have to be able to that specific type of welding. dave

It has the same basic engine??? Any ideas or suggestions... Jim

Consider welding

I don't see any pictures posted in this thread, but if you want to email/pm them to me I can take a look at. I do all the welding for our machine job shop (including aluminum TIG welding), and unless the pan is severly mangled, I would anticipate that it should be readily welded - would need to be thoroughly cleaned prior to welding. If the damage is in/around any sealing surfaces, it may require some machining after welding.

Regards,
Andy
