  • Sump update! My nice new 1.9 tdi t5 sump i ordered has arrived. So naturally i offered it up to the engine. Well im pleased all the bolt holes match apart from the bottom and rear bell housing holes but i dont think that will make too much odds as the abl just had a dust cover there. Pretty pleased with the result. I think im gonna leave the oil pick up till its in the van so we can get the definite sweet spot.

    its not about following the trend.... its about making it!

    • Been quite busy today. First uo put the skoda mount back on as were going to fabricate a chassis mount to suit as the van one dont fit. Then it was the clutch and box time. Rung my mate up to borrow his aliment kit. No answer so i made one out of a socket and insulation tape. Worked fine. Now the gear box. Couldn't figure out why it wasn't mounting up. Found out it was the sump was hitting the gear box leg. So quick phone call to my welder mate that teaches welding at a localish college and ran through what needed doing. Found out we are going to butcher it. Sod it take sump off and mount gearbox. Dad randomly turned up so we plonked the engine in and just straped the drivers side mount and jack underneath untill we do summit. Just gonna cover the sump with cling film until i have sorted it. Quite chuffed. Even better as the mrs is bringing a takeaway home with beer lol

          • Cheers guys. Unfortunately i have good intentions through the week to do things in the evenings but with the mrs working nights by the time kids are in bed its not really worth doing anything that takes undivided attention. But just gives me time to think

                • After a month of not posting I thought I better shove summit in your faces lol. My dad's has been helping me a lot now as he seems to be some sort of wizard. The kind of bloke that can seem to make summit from nothing. I'm gonna keep it short as I hate doin long posts. I had the issue where a new engine mount needed to b made. So me and dad set about using the one out of the Skoda. So got it cut out and some welding and bracing etching it's in. The gear box leg mount didn't fit so dad made summit out of it that worked. Had to beat the bulk head back for the vacuum and turbo. Mocked up the angle for the exhaust. Bloody happy it's in. Muddy garden made it interesting for the crane last time so boards down. I also put a gazebo up aswell. Oh I got me sump back but post that at another point

                    • Out of curiosity. What is this? It's on the coolant pipes.

                            That's it, under certain conditions it should pump coolant round. Since I repaired the loom last week ours has sprang into life.

                              • Had a look in the manual now I have it back. It at circulation pump so yeah I'll agree. Auxiliary pump sounds better
