Operating as usual


It comes with great sadness but it is time for a new direction in life:

Charlies Oil Pans is for sale and closing its doors at the end of the year. Last day of work will end Dec 19th. Thank you to all the loyal customers over the years.

I will sell the business with all equipment $70,000 or equipment separate. Email [email protected] for more information. Please no phone calls.


Due to changes in the industry, we will be shifting our concentration to a true "Custom" pan. The industry has just become too competitive for a small personal shop like ours to compete with the larger fab shops. We want to provide the best quality at the best price and unfortunately it may leave us losing a few customers. If you still want the personal attention to your specific details, we would be glad to build you a great pan, valve covers, carburetors, piston cooling system, etc....

Great to see and meet everyone at PRI. Successful trip.


BUYER BEWARE!!! DO NOT SELL ANYTHING TO XV RACING IF YOU WANT TO GET PAID. Not happy with the way this company does business. Built them an oil pan, when it was first paid for, the credit card was rejected. Was put off for nearly 2 months to be told the product would not work for them and has not returned the pan nor made payment. I was warned about this with them but did not listen.


Survived the hurricane, hope everyone else weathered well.


Here's a shout out to anyone that has a pic of a pan we built. Please post the pic on your page and send us a link.


Let us know if you will be at the Bradenton race this weekend, we will be walking around, catching up with customers and hoping to meet new ones. See you there.


We are offering Mobile Welding Services, Mobile Fabrication (headers, Exhaust, Stainless steel and exotic metals)


Finally getting somewhere with our page. If you can read this hit me back and please like our page. Pass us on, we are trying to get the word out and grow. Appreciate it.


Its the weekend and Scott is finishing up a pan to ship and I have just set up this page...correctly I hope. Sorry the last one was not set up properly, so please re-friend us.

Charlie's Oil Pans is now a licensed dealer and modifier for the Piston Cooling System from Mike's R&D LLC (Mike Laws).

The Piston Cooling System (PCS) provides a modification to existing engine blocks that sprays oil directly onto the underside of each piston. This oil stream intensely cools the piston allowing for longer piston life, more aggressive tune-ups and additional lubrication to the wrist pins. Proven to be a requirement for boosted engines, the system also provides advantages to various NA engines as well. Engine markets include: Nitrous, supercharged, turbocharged, naturally aspirated engines using vacuum pumps and more. The PCS system works equally as well in dry sump or wet sump engines. Popular classes using the PCS includes Drag, marine, sprint cars, stock cars, truck pullers, road-course racers, land speed racing and more. A particularly interesting & growing market is the popular demo-derby engines due to the added reliability that the PCS provides.

The PCS consists of a series of drill fixtures engineered to properly position one jet per cylinder into the engine block. Each kit comes with the fixture(s) and enough tooling and jets to complete one engine. Additional tooling and jets are available from Charlie's Oil Pans.

Would you rather have your engine block modified for the PCS by a professional? Scott Rose of Charlie's Oil Pans has modified countless engine blocks over the years and is offering this service at a very reasonable rate. Call and talk to Scott about having your engine block modified for piston cooling at: 321-310-0890


Scott Rose of Charlie's Oil Pans was instrumental in the design and construction of the popular sheet-metal valve covers originated by Mike Laws and sold by BLP Racing Products for decades. Scott worked closely with Mike on all new designs and is bringing those valve covers to market here at Charlie's. Call Scott and discuss your valve cover needs and ask about their oil pan/valve cover package deals."
