PostSubject: Oil Sump   Wed Jul 30, 2014 5:05 am

Hi all, can you kindly confirm that the oil sump pan (part 6138) is used on all Reliants?  
I have a Robin R Reg 1998 which has been laid up  for a while due to me  being unable to drive due to frozen shoulder and a fair amount of oil is leaking from it.  The other half decided to pressure wash the engine to try to find the cause of said oil leak and he thinks he shifted enough rust from the sump that it looks more like a cheese-grater and now there is no oil registering on the dipstick!

He reckons he found a mention on the internet that someone was once producing aluminium rocker box covers, are these still available? I was hoping to dip into the wisdom of the old Reliant forum and was shocked to find it no more  Shocked  It would be good if at least the technical bits of the archived files could be accessed.

New forum looking good - one question though - can you change the colours? particularly for quoted text which are showing up as black text on a black background unless I high-light with the mouse.

Thanks in anticipation Smile

According to my information source the 850, 750 and 700cc reliant engines all use the same Sump, however we are unsure about the 600cc.

Thanks very much for the info and the new colours are much better!
Sorry I have not replied - I've been busy with family issues but we now have a replacement oil sump cover and gaskets, I just need himoutdoors to fit it!  I have been advised not to drive for a while until my frozen shoulder gets a bit better (gearstick arm) but am going to suggest that "EWU" needs a run and so it needs oil and therefore a sump; himself does enjoy taking it for a spin so it should'nt take too much persuasion.

Thanks about the info re the alloy rocker cover, I have passed the info onto himself who will doubtless let me know if he thinks it would be a good idea - noise reduction?
Thank you again everyone who replied.

I have a alloy rocker cover on my engine, more oil tight and quieter at speed Smile
