You are going to have to take the pan off if you exchange it, so why not just repair it? I do not beleive that the transmission sump will ever be under any pressure, just heat from the oil inside it. If there is a leak/hole/damage caused by impact, you could fill it with a high temp glue (like a liquid metal compound) or have it spot welded.

I seem to think that the transmission is the same between all the LS400s so I guess the pans are all the same too. It is not too heavy, perhaps you could get one from the states.

Good luck

Matt, once the pan is off, perhaps you can get the dipstick tube welded back on?
