    114-032

    So the sump is drained, the sump bolts are off but the pan is still sitting there smiling. I've run a sharp edge around the groove between the bottom of the block and the sump pan, and have left it for a while... will check again on the weekend. I've put a bottle jack and a piece of wood there in case it comes down suddenly while I'm not looking. Folks tell me that it might have a cork gasket!

    While underneath, I'm impressed with the amount of effort gone to earth every part. There are earth braids going everywhere, including to the sump pan.
    I guess this is for radio silence, which is good as I intend to get a a suitable HF set for it some time ( de VK2DLY ).

    There is a bracket welded to the exhaust extractor which goes under one of the sump bolts. Presumably that was to stop the extractor vibrating off, but it's a nuisance.

    Exhaust pipe off

    Well one thing led to another. A bracket which had been welded onto the exhaust pipe was holding it under the sump and was just in the way. Rather than cutting it off, I chose to unbolt the exhaust pipe and hold it to one side with some effort and baling twine. That freed the bottom of the sump pan (which is still stuck on the gasket). I'll have to replace the two nuts and spring washers as they are in a parlous state, which is not surprising.
