    Default Sump removal

    Hi,
    Has anyone removed the sump from a 1.9 cdti 120 with the engine in place. I've committed a class school boy gaff and lowered the engine into a socket which was resting on the drivers side chassis member and put a whole the size of a thumb nail through the casting. If the sump will come off without too much hassle I'll get it welded. If not it will be a piece of 2 mm plate, 4 drilled and tapped holes and a liberal quantity of "tiger" seal or similar.
