ss parts - ally sump

Post by Db n j » Sat Nov 03, 2018 8:33 pm

Aluminium sump for the DB18 Special Sports engine.

(today with Derek's help, managed to safely remove the engine and gearbox from the Barker)

So, the list of parts is not surprisingly long and painful. - looks like it was rebuilt and not run in the past, but all of the waterways are solid,
in the head, and block, so it wouldnt have lasted long !. The engine is now free, but the bores are not good - so need to bore from plus 30 to hopefully

In the meantime, the sump is pressed steel, so looking for an aluminium version please.

(and some cheap plus 40 pistons...)

Tim, I don't have any to hand, but I will be in the garage on Thursday, so will send some them
(or maybe I should have another go at posting on the Forum ??)

Thanks, for the response.
