Stabbed Pinto Sump


Recommended Posts

What is a fair price to charge the council for the replacement shortened sump. I was crossing a cattle grid but it was damaged

and piece of steel came up and stopped me dead with a big hole in the sump. Away the he grid won`t rust away now.

Councils aren't all tight fisted. I had a windscreen broken by their use of "tar and gravel" road surfacing. (You know the type I mean, the sort that bikers hate - kind of like 20 grit sandpaper ...)


I managed to get the excess paid for by them. Mind, that was a few years ago ... :)

Ouch. Don't you have to remove engine to replace sump, that must be at least half a day labour. Refill oil and coolant. Maybe best to get a quote and use that, you can always do it yourself afterwards. At least you have your own engine crane! Bri
