I've just drained the oil and dropped the sump to remove the old foam on my k series.
I'm now having real trouble refitting the sump. It just doesn't seem to want to go on properly, there seems to be too much of a gap at the front of the engine.
Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this?
I wonder if it could be the oil pick up pipe being a bit low at the end where it goes up into the engine, but I had to move it down slightly to enable the bolts to line up correctly and go in smoothly.
Have I got the metal plate and gasket in the right order?
