Blacktop sump
furryeggs - 17/8/19 at 01:45 PM

Iíve stupidly put my blacktop/st 2 piece sump on a pile of bits for the scrap man. I wasnít going to be using it but i need one to store the engine for a while. I donít want to leave it open to the air whilst itís on the stand.

has anyone got one laying around. condition not a worry.

Iíve got one I started to modify. It will want a dam good clean.

I am very busy with work for the next few weeks but I can leave it out for you.

Could you not wrap the engine in craft paper soaked in oil then covered thoroughly with cling film?
I have done that a couple of times with corrosion sensitive stuff and lasted a good few years with no visible signs of corrosion.
