Yes I had thought about that, I was thinking of a shorter stick?

I did measure the size of the original area and was going to use this as a guide to how much oil would have been lost by removing it .

 

The truck sumps are deeper than the car sumps

You can always weld a box shape on the side of the sump to make up for any loss....

I did it on the supra motor in my mk2.  Drilled a few hold un the side of the sump and welded a small steel box I made in.place.

Cheers for the pikkis :thumbsup:

 

But I dont think its needed, the book says 4 quarts, which is 8 pints. This is with 8 pints of water in it.

There will be a pint in the filter and resting in the engine

Assuming the original measures are in US pints (where a quart is just under a litre)  you might have more room than you think
