If it is not that rusty you might consider cleaning and treating with a rust inhibitor and then paint it. https://saferoad.org/best-rustproofing-paints/

Two things:


Agree, if just superficial rust, clean it up, prime and paint.


Also, the Caterpillar 3126 same with two choices for pans/oil capacity.


Because you mention rust, I ASSUME you have the stamped steel (shallow) pan, not the deep aluminum pan. Safari used the deep pan on many of the earlier engines.

You will need to get a part number to determine cost. Should be able to contact Cat dealer and provide engine serial number, they should be able to look it up.

In the USA there is a market for used parts but when it comes to something like an oil pan you will probably pay as much as new.

General guess would be ~$250.
