During an engine swap or rebuild the shop floor frequently gets littered with liquid gifts from the old block. No matter how well you think it’s sealed — or how empty you swear it is — that old block is the gift that keeps on giving. So why fight it? Let it drop fluid everywhere and produce gunk all it wants! Just keep it contained with an engine drip tray.
A drip tray is a shallow hard plastic tray designed to fit over the bottom frame of your three or four wheeled engine stand. It rests below the engine and catches all the gunky madness emanating from the iron heart of your ride.
The best part is that at the end of the project, once the fluid is drained and disposed of, you can hose the tray off or clean it with soap and water, and it’s good as new. (As your motor is, too, hopefully.)
