Roadster LWT sump change

Postby Sean Horwood » Sat Aug 14, 2010 1:31 pm

Hello!

I'm in the process of changing my Roadster sump for one of the Mulberry modified ones.

All the bolts are out and the sump is still very much in position and not budging by more than a couple of mm.

Not wanting to cause irrepairable damage to either the sump (the Mulberry boys would like it back) or engine block how do I get the old sump off?

The sump in question uses the rubber gasket that fits into the grooves on both block and sump flange so I expected some effort to remove it but with nothing to lever against it's a real struggle.

Many thanks (as usual!)

OK stand down on that - I'm just a half blind fool!

I missed one of the bolts hidden at the back (thought I'd done both and still missed one when I checked again!!) #-o
