Due to various reasons, it’s taken quite a while to get the oil pan reinstalled.
Sadly with victory in sight, I now have a bad oil leak on the left front side of the engine as you look at it 🙁
So pretty disappointed, investigation will begin at the w/e.
Onwards and upwards!
Yes I think the pan was too green so I went for black, I think you’ll agree it looks a darn sight better? 🙂
Got the oil pump cleaned, the pan painted and the gasket & seals in place, but ran into some issues with the plastic snap ups. Will try again with some metal locating studs, watch this space.
Thanks to Mrs F for the delicate trimming of seals 🙂
