Hi Avelars!  I can't find the particular post you mentioned, and I'm not quite sure what information you are seeking.  Either a junkyard or ebay are probably your best bet for something like a license plate bracket.

Quoted from the other thread...

Quote from: Rawdawg510
looking for a 2.3l front sump oil pan to do a TC swap I have a 2.3 already but the pan it bent pretty bad. I will try to straighten it out and bang out the dents but if I cant does any one have one or knoe where to get one?

That's one thing that is very hard to find these days. I stumbled onto a 7qt race pan when I needed one, but only acquired a stock one by buying a parts car. In fact, parts cars are easier to find IMO.

Funny thing is that the 7qt race pan was made by modifying a later stock rear-sump pan. I might try that myself with the old Thunderbird pan now that I have a TIG welder.

In your case though, I would take a body hammer and dolly to what you have. Actually, if appearance isn't a big concern and as long as the pickup isn't obstructed by dents and the pan isn't cracked or leaking, I'd rather leave it alone.

I'll second that. I've only seen one or two pans that could not be fixed. Dents are easy to fix most times. Cracks are easy with a welder. A piece of 1 inch round bar stock about 18 inch's long and a BFH will allow you to reach the bottom of the sump.

To check the pickup clearance what I do is to cut a piece of material 3/8 inch thick. An old magazine or plywood just so long as it fits the bottom of the sump. Then install the pan without a gasket. If the pan sits flush on the block your ok. If you want to know how much clearance you really have add more material to the sump till the pan doesn't fit flush on the block. Biggest place where the pans leak is around the drain plug. Harder to fix but doable.

I just use child's clay or plumbers putty between the pick up and the pan. It helps to use something like powder or oil so the pliable doesn't stretch when the pan is removed.  BTW, this works well for hood clearances too.
