This business buys and parts out engines: Surplusman : Home Page
Also, if the engine had an farming use, there are tractor junkyards across America and Canada.
Or find a business that rebuilds them. Often they have engine pieces.

What is wrong with the one that came with the engine? A good welder can fix a lot of problems.

I put a hole in it trying to lift the engine to change motor mounts. Bad move on my part. I will remove the pan and assess the damage this weekend. hope it is repairable. no luck finding a pan.

Did you ask Brian at American Diesel? My mechanic here has lots of used Lehman motors and parts and Iím asking him for you, Iím in Tampa area

Yes, Brian was my first call. I might have a lead on a used one that is close to me. I am just hoping the casting #s match.

Weld it. Its just mild steel. Clean it thoroughly first. Do it step by step allowing it to cool between beads so it doesn't warp, if its cracked, stop-drill it. Should be an easy repair.

FOUND one in Oakland Ca. Just last week.Just a short drive away from me. What a job ! I had to lift the engine up to the floor boards to get the old pan out/new pan in. I hope to never do that again !

Thank you all for the comments and support . BTW the pan is cast aluminum. I now check anything Iím putting pressure on with a magnet.

I placed a vertical support from the inboard stringer to the floor system at each end of the mocked A frame. It basically transferred the weight onto the inboard stringer. The wood came from a scrap pile at work. I used a 2 ton come-a-long at the rear of the engine and a 2 ton rated ratchet strap around the pulley simply because that is what my brother and I could pull together on short notice. so I got out of this one pretty cheap I guess. I paid $300.00 for the pan that came off of a seized tractor motor ( is what I was told) the guy threw in the new gasket. And I plan on buying my brother dinner for helping me on his free weekend . It was a sweet moment when we got the engine down on the new supports on Sunday afternoon. I hope to get the motor going this weekend.

Great success! That was quite the hole. Pretty hard to repair that.

I put a vertical support from the stringer to the floor member below the mocked A frame. There is a support below each end of the A frame. Worked fine. I had a 1 ton rated Come-a-long at the rear of the motor / trans and a 4000lb rated ratchet strap around the front pulley.and a safety chain as a backup.
