Are you talking about the front of the pan? (bulkhead) If so it's possible to replace it but to do it right you will need to build a jig of some sort to hold everything in place while welding the bulkhead back in place. This is the sort of thing that you really need to measure, measure, measure... and then measure again before you strike an arc. Once this thing is welded in place there is no way to shim things to fix it if it's installed wrong.

Thanks for the info, I have the body off the pan,so access is no problem. Guess I will have to get a new tape measure for this.termite856
