Front engine block oil leak source - Not sump

Recommended Posts

The front engine block sump bolt thread on TR2-4 is a textbook source for oil leak. Forget the washer in refitting the sump bolt or try putting a longer bolt if the thread is damaged and the aluminum block will crack giving way to oil leak "from the sump". This adds up to the long list of potential leaks from the engine block.
