Still on the sump

Another question... I ordered a new sump for my 146 from Alfa Motorzone (Limerick), but the one they sent looks nothing like the one that's on the car. I gave them the chassis number and all, and they insist the one they sent is the right one, but garage can't see how it can be fitted. Does this make any sense to anyone? Was the sump changed along the way or anything? Thanks again for everyone's help Eithne

Re: Still on the sump

If your car is a twinspark, rather than a boxer engine, then as far as I know all the sumps are pretty much the same - although I think on the other thread you said yours is a 1400cc, and we don't get that this side of the Irish sea...I guess its possible that the 1400cc engine is physically smaller?
If you have any pix we could possibly advise better.

Sorry can't help more...


Ah - just looked on Eper - there are two versions of the sump for the 1.4 twinspark, apparently dependent on a mod to the gearbox. Part number 60812969 is the oddball version, unique to the 1.4. Part number 60605820 is common to all other 145/146 Twinsparks - 1.4 - 2.0 engines.
