I've got some blue silicone Loctite sealant which says is suitable for sumps:

clicky

And I've found a website selling the stuff that says:

# Fix Cure Time @ Temp.: 30 min @ 25

Damn. Do you know of any faster setting sealant?

There's a hump back bridge near me that I've found is more likely to make you jump one way than the other. I went over it one way at 25-30, and it was fine. Went back the other way a few minutes later at 25-30, and it wasn't fine! Balls.

Genuine Pug stuff seems to hold well, I have used an engine after mounting the sump only 1.5 hours before, and it has been fine. Yes

The time is no longer an issue, someone else on my course has handed in my assignment for me, phew! I'm just about to use the blue loctite sealant I mentioned in the first post.

Is the oil pump chain usually quite slack? Not slack enough so it could come off but it's got a fair amount of movement in it. Slacker than your typical single speed bike chain?

Is Motaquip silicone sealant ok for a sump??
My oil pump chain is fairly slack but not as you say slack enough to come off!! I think that may be normal.

Ok the sump has been on for an hour now, but I'll leave it until tomorrow before I stick some oil in, then fingers crossed.

One last thing, I cant seem to figure out how the AC pump goes back on the mounts... And I've no idea how I'm getting the top two nuts for it back on either

I'll have a look on servicebox but if anyone can remember off the top of their head I'd love to know Razz
