GTV 2.0TS - sump removal, need help ASAP please!!!!

Howsit guys,

Just the 2 sides of the sump casing???

You removed the two ribe bolts that are hidden by the gearbox side?

You need to also drop the oil pick up out in order to get it to drop.

The oil pick up is in the sump at the drivers end ,
There are 2 small 10mm head bolts that attatch it to the oil pump
If you lower the sump end a little you can just see the pipe and the joint that holds it.
Very awkward but you need to undo them to free the oil pick up in the sump to get the sump off.
Be careful you make a note of which way the small metal gasket in the joint fits as this is very important it goes back the same way as if not it will cause oil starvation.

No problem but as said make sure the little gasket goes in the right way round as I seized a replacement engine when I got it wrong.
Did you get the 2 ribes out buried right up by the bell housing sort of behind the thin metal joining plate that is between the engine and gear box ?

Yeah got the ribes out, the priblem was the oil pick up, but i onlybhad to remove one bolt and loosen the other and wiggle to sump off. The gasket therefore wasnt an issue.

The sump had been broken amd welded quite badly before hand it turned out so ive had to mill down the sump to get a flat top again and will be using gasket paper and gasket maker/sealer so hopefully it will seal 100% now as there was alredi a leak before hand through sweating through the seal, about a pint every 2 weeks. Gonna start the re assembly now. WML

cheers

Glad you're getting there. If you have a look on ebay , you can find a replacement sump from time to time.. Normally 30 ish .
Let us know if you fix it It should only need sealant, RTV gasket sealant is the stuff.

Oh and be careful not to over do the 2 bottom bolts that bolt through the g/box bell housing to the side of the sump as it can crack the sump
