Here are some photos taken during the testing of the aluminum oil pan.
Here we installed an aluminum pan on a 1989 Syncro then raised up the back end of the Van with the jack on the oil pan. There was no damage at all afterwards. Try this yourself at your own risk! We cannot verify that every pan will hold up to these kinds of stress tests - they are oil pans after all!
We decided there was too much contact area so we took a 1 1/2" diameter piece of metal and put it between the jack plate and the pan. There was still no damage.
Still wanting to break something, we put the oil pan in the hydraulic press and put over 8 tons of force on it. The pan split at about 9 1/2 tons.
