I was cleaning the exterior of my "new" 57 Windsor A-466 Torqueflite and finally "flipped" it over (if anything that weighs 165 lbs dry can be "flipped") only to see that the pan has a big dint in it. Not perforated or anything but it would take away oil capacity. I would like to replace it with a NOS pan or a fancy after market pan but I can only find pans for 727s or 904s. Anybody have any ideas? Google and eBay were not helpful while searching on 1636286 oil pan.

Item 155 in the diagram becomes PN 1636 286.

This is the dinted oil pan. It could probably be banged out but I'd rather find a nicer one (if possible):

But first, this photo (not mine) shows the very square(ish) shape of the A-466 torqueflite oil pan (with the pan removed)

That pan looks to be very solid, I would just pound it out as straight as you can. Get out few blocks of wood and a hammer and see what you can do, you'd be surprised how straight you can get it. No one will ever know but you.

I have straightened out much worse ones - if you have a hydraulic press it's very easy, but also, as informed above - a woodblock and a good hammer

Okay. Thanks for the hints guys.

It seemed like a NOS pan was going to be impossible to I bit the bullet this AM and removed the pan from the 57 Windsor A-466 Torqueflite in order to fix the pan. Asking whether the oil inside the trans was red or brown is a laugh. It was absolutely black and very very thick. Think crude oil. It took a lot to clean out of the pan and as much as I could get at at the exposed bits of the transmission. Yikes.

Once the pan was clean enough, I placed it bottom side down on my 1942 concrete garage floor and proceeded to "adjust" the dint with a long piece of 2 x 4 spruce and a large rubber mallet. Didn't take too long before it was pretty flat. I also used a piece of 1 x 3 to get at some of the tighter bits. Eventually I called it quits and cleaned up (wire wheeled) the outside and inside and painted the outside (as shown below). I need a bit more cleaning on the inside before I put the pan back on. (The transmission shop will remove it when they redo the inner bits).

Some photos from today:
