Re: sump help??!!! PLEASEEEEEEEE
unfortunately, it's not that simple,
remove alloy bridge, you'll see what I mean
remove exhaust downpipe
remove exhaust support from the engine mount
remove bolt from rear engine mount which goes into the sump
remove 13mm bolt from beside OS drive shaft, through wheel arch
remove 14 ribe bolts, 7 & 8mm, you will need ribe bits at least 100mm long
lever sump away from block, it will be stuck hard
oil pump pick-up will prevent it from coming all the way down, loosen front bolt, remove rear and swing it round allowing the sump down...
refitting is reverse of removal but take care to ensure oil pump gasket is in place.
no sump gasket, only high temp sealer.
2nd hand sump ~£50 from breakers, PM rgwm, he should be able to help....
