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
