Ok guys, I dropped out my oil pan to clean it out before reassebling my 235.Well it had a bunch of sludge on the bottom by the drain hole. After scubbing it out it has several holes in it. It was suggested that I braze the holes. After going to town to buy oxygen it seemed to work until I ran out of oxy. (I just have a small hand held brazing torch). Is this a good way to go? Or is there a better way? The pan is in great shape other than where the sludge built up. Thanks for any input. P.S. I don't have a welder yet.

I migged a pan for my 454.For steering clearance.
And I've brazed some in the past.Works great,but the heat will warp it and it's hard to get paint to stay on the brass.
And lastly,I've used J.B.Weld on a lot of them.You have to re-do it every so often since it don't last for more than 2 or 3 years.
