And another thing…

Just about to put the sump back on when I decided to double check the oil return pipe which I had found in the oil pan when we removed it.

The pipe has damaged threads, doesn’t look like an original and had a dab of solder helping to secure it. So I’ve ordered a new one which should be here tomorrow.

As you can see the engine is using a five bearing cam in a three bearing block (thanks to John Cochran for point this out)

Interesting difference between the Snyder’s & Mac’s oil pan gaskets, Snyder’s one has far more “cork”
