Oil Pan Saga Continues

Posted by

Still working on the oil pan, and have been having a real issue getting it relocated.

It would appear that there has been a long standing issue with the front engine mounting, (and possibly others), that has caused the clearance between the front cross member and the oil pan to be considerably reduced.

As you can see a plate has been added under the front engine mount, which isn’t standard for sure!

Will be investigating the replacement of the front engine mounting prior to refitting the oil pan.

I have managed to bend the oil thrower on the front crank gear whilst trying to install the oil pan with a lack of clearance.

So not only do I need to sort the engine mounts, I also need to ensure that the oil thrower is as straight as I can get it without fouling.
