    I can’t remember which one I bought . It may have come from Heritage or Ebay ?. As said I don’t think there’s anything in it with a part like this . I would recommend getting the rubber/cork type washer for the sump plug , mine came with a metal one which did not seal well at all .i nipped it up but I still had a drip , so I changed it .

    92 VR6 . DBP. She will never be a show car ..... But will be up there with the best of em .

    The bmw seems invincible in isolation . But along side the corrado - a modern classic , we think- it has its work cut out . Autocar 1992.

    That new engine i bought, (Meant to have come from VW), had no gasket on the sump, just quite a thick layer of white sealant.
    Just like a golf................But better!!!

    I have a 4motion MK4 sump ready to use when needed, being cast alloy the flange doesn't distort like a steel sump when you tighten the bolts up into the gasket. Put a straight edge across the row of bolt holes on your old or replacement steel sump too see how distorted they are and the likelihood of seepage.

    Done exactly that at lunch... put a steel rule over the mating surface that gasket sits on and tried to see light through the gap... all seems good here. It has a graze on the flat area by the sump bolton the outer skin assume it's not too thin material here.

    Thanks dox

    Later cars had longer bolts and a rubber seal I believe. Mine is a 92, so I have a the thin paper type gasket so I put a smear around the surface first .
