Engine just about ready to go back in the car...


I decided to shorten the sump but only by an inch or so as that will just about bring it level with the exhaust manifold and oil filter and maximise ground clearance.


Cut up and new component parts. I filled in the slope at the front part to regain lost capacity and it turned out near enough identical to the original volume. I cut slots at the top and bottom of the additional triangular section so the old sloped wall acts like a baffle.


All welded up, just needs a clean and like of paint, then to shorten the pick-up tube. Note the drain plug is at the low point...


Looking and thinking about it now I might weld on some strengthening ribs on the bottom level wiht the drain plug to add some strength...
