Spent hours with the wire wheel just cleaning stuff. Started on the engine then spent another couple of hours on removing the oil sump.


Removed bit around the engine for easier cleaning


Wire wheel on the drill got most of it off ready for paint


The sump didn't come off easy, after taking out the 22 bolts I had to chisel away at the old gasket


It eventually dropped


First time i'd ever seen what's underneath the oil sump


Can see directly underneath the piston
