However, I have just this evening have been very fortunate. Whilst following up on a replacement bonnet for the rather tatty one...
Clive did similar with a Milodon trapdoor sump on a Chev once, had the engine on the engine crane with the jib fully extended ready to drop in and the whole thing end for ended, wrecked the expensive sump ,squashed it flat and theoilpump housing----poo
