December 2003: New Sump

After managing to wreck another sump - well at least put another hole in it so I was losing oil again, I decided that I needed to provide a longer term solution. Fortunately Chris Hards mentioned he had bought a shortened sump for a pinto from Lyndale Engines in Peterborough. With this in mind I bought a new sump from them and at the time of writing have just finished fitting it - the car has been test run and seems to be OK but we will see when I next get to drive it.
