I have an International 504, the oil pan is pushed in pretty far. The drain hole is no longer the low point of the pan, so I am trying to drop the pan to try and knock it back into shape. The problem is I can not get the pan out, does anyone have any experience removing one of these? The oil pump sticks down pretty low into the pan making it difficult to remove the pan. Is it possible to remove one of the tie rods and get it to come out? How about unbolting the yoke?

The other option is to leave it alone, put a new gasket on it and tighten the pan back on. I just do not like the idea of not getting the old oil out during an oil change. But do not really want to tear the tractor apart to fix the oil pan.

In the very real, practical world...that dent would have to hold ALOT of oil before I'd mess with it. Change the oil, run it awhile and do it again much sooner than you normally would...just my humble opinion.

Just wanted to give a quick update on dropping the oil pan in my IH 504.
I jacked up the front end of the tractor and was able to rotate the yoke assembly enough the slip the oil pan past the oil pump and tie rod to get in dropped. So with a little work it will drop out without having to remove anything fromt he tractor as I had heard from other posts on the internet. Hope this is helpful to other 504 owners in the future.

Now I need to figure out what to do with a stripped out bolt hole that is the hardest spot to reach...... It is always something.

Can you get to it--even with a right angle drill--and drill it out and insert
heli-coil?
