    DSC00017.jpg

    this ought to be the right hand side

    sorry, this was real crap photo, too much close up

    (that purple curly thing stretching from the uppper right hand part of the photo and down towards the left is
    actually just a single AWG20 cable, really slim (my gear oil temp sensor cable))

    A Lexus sump consists of 2 parts.

    An alloy section that bolts to the bottom of the engine block and a tin pan (looks like chrome in your photos) that then bolts to the bottom of the alloy section.
    |
    The depth of the sump is measured from the bottom of the engine block to the bottom of the tin pan.

    I've just ordered a new sump from Sudsy as I think it will improve the oil cooling on my car.

    It suffers from the oil overheating on long hills because I thrash it to get up them.

    right,

    think I understand what you mean, need to have another look in sunshine then
    (mebbee early tomorrow morning, if not - next week)

    (yes, the bottom part is chromed)

    (I also have some problems with high oil temps,
    the mill is in a boat - and boats are ALWAYS driving uphill, no such a thing as a flat
    road for boats, not to mention downhill)

    ----
    How deep/tall is the sump section above what you call the tin pan?
    So that I would know roughly where to look for a seem (hmmm seam?) in the block.

    The aluminium section is around 100mm deep then the tin pan which is around 75mm deep.

    I haven't seen a stock sump for yars so going off memory.

    My new sump turned up this morning from Sudsy and it is a thing of beauty.

    It looks too nice to get dirty.

    I'll fit it in the next few weeks and report back on how it goes.

    Sudsy has machined the flange surface between the sump and block and pre-drilled and countersunk all the mounting holes so it is literally a bolt in proposition.

    The only thing I need supply is new sealant.

    I expect it to hold a litre or more oil than my existing pan and being alloy it should make it run cooler, which is a good thing.

    sure
    found the piece, didn't measure it but 10 cm sounds about right
    never occured to me that this should be called sump though

    (had to look a bit, partly covered by the radiator and partly covered by
    big steel frames on the engine that is used for bolting the engine to a gimbal)
