C20Xe Manta - Sump Gasket Replacement


Recommended Posts

I need to change my sump gasket on my redtop Manta. Doesn't look like much space between the bottom of the sump & the crossmember. A few of questions for you......

1. Presumably if I loosen the engine mounts and lift the engine a couple of inches there is room to remove the sump?

2. What sump gasket type is best. Currently its the double cork type, but I always have a leak with this type.

3. Do you normally use a sealer as well as the sump gasket. I did, but it still leaked!!

you may just get sump off but it will need to be lifted a fair way to clear pick up pipe. if you have the xe anti oil surge plate in use the surge plate with bonded gaskets fitted full thing is £20 if i remember correctly. when i did mine i used a single cork gasket with steel inserts (early carlton 1.8) so you tighten it down correctly and i used a bit of wellseal on each side. as you can guess i did not use the xe surge guard as the manta 1.8 sump is adequate without it.
