BTW, I have interesting problems with the sump. Every time I take the nuts off the studs holding the sump on, I seem to strip the thread on one or two of the studs. I'm not using a lot of torque, and this has even happened when I'm undoing them. OK, so it's an old car, and I guess it's not too hard to get them out still, but I just wondered if anyone else had experienced this. Surely the thread should be stripped from the softer block long before it is from the studs?
