    Good suggestion if your on a budget. Personally I wouldnt be happy regardless of workmanship. Thats just me.

    Have you made such a hole that the sump has emptied itself everywhere?

    And the thing is that nobody seems to make pattern sumps!!

    I had one go porous on a cavalier I had - mind you, it had done about 140,000 miles at the time!!
