A quick question regarding E-series sumps.

I was just wondering whether the sump from an EF or EL would be a straight swap for an ED Falcon. The reason I am asking is because my sump has a big dent in it from the previous owner. It's not making a big deal (according to the mechanic) but it should be replaced. I know it's a big and expensive job as the whole engine needs to be lifted out.

Were there any differences in the EBII and ED sumps?

Thanks for your assistance.

Re: A quick question regarding E-series sumps.

EB2 and ED shared the same motor so the sumps are the same , not sure about the EF/L ones tho...

Re: A quick question regarding E-series sumps.

If the engine is running fine, and you never see oil pressure drop, I wouldn't bother.

Re: A quick question regarding E-series sumps.

Only prob is the oil light comes on and off occasionally. I can't check the correct oil level either...

Bugger, that's bad.
You might need to replace it then.

Re: A quick question regarding E-series sumps.

As far as I know they have the same gasket, so I would think they are the same sump, but why not just get an ED sump? Why bother with an EF/EL one?

Re: A quick question regarding E-series sumps.

I don't know so, what makes a EF/L one better than an EB/D?

What I did was had mine mod'd to hold more and have the crank scraper. All good.

Re: A quick question regarding E-series sumps.

3.9 and 4l sumps are different.
The 4L sump is deeper.
But the EL sump will fit on an EA/ED with no worries. I know cos I've done it after putting an EA sump on an ED motor and having the crank knock on it

Re: A quick question regarding E-series sumps.

I was just wondering whether an EF/EL sump will fit because that way I can have an easier time finding one at a wrecker. I'll be replacing it in a looong time from now though :( Stupid costs of car maintenance!
