    help.



    got a slight problem. When i was modifying my 1-UZ sump to fit over the front diff in my Prado, i warped it to hell - now the bolt holes are out by 20mm in some places, and there's no way it'll ever seal again. As it stands, i'm using 3 pairs of vice grips to hold it on - it runs now, which is half the job out of the way.

    Any searches ive tried over the past six months have come up with nothing, largely due to the fact that not many people are wrecking a 1-UZ.

    Does anyone have any ideas where i could could get a sump for it?

    It's a front sump engine (out of a car, probably not a soarer). I need the steel section.

    But if anyone knew of a rear or mid sump engine, i'd need the alloy and steel sections, and the oil pickup. That'd solve all my problems.


    I need one urgently as i'm running out of time with this project.

    Hey dude,

    Try asking on the lextreme forums (google for link). There are a couple of NZ people on there that may be able to help, otherwise im sure one of the US dudes will have one for you.

    If it falls through and you need to sell the 1uz off, pm me

    Not sure if I should post here...

    I now work at a bulk fastening supplier (EDL) and have acess to the national stock database. Looking for that obscure bolt, set screw, nut or other fastener for your car? I may be able to help...

    BSW, UNC, UNF, and all that jazz - 304, 312, ZP, ZC, SC - high tensile, mild steel, 12g socket... it goes on and on.

    I was hoping they were, that'd make it easy. but the last wrecker i spoke to said "nah mate, not even close...", so i cant tell if hes telling the truth or just being a prick..


    It certainly looks similar, but then the rest of the body is bigger, so maybe not. I'll put up some measurements when i get back from xmas.
