Just reading stockstandards'About the different ford 6’s and engine retrofit information (http://www.fordmods.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=31883), and
Quote:
AU to EF/EL
The EF/EL got an upgraded k-frame which is even more confined than the EA-ED. Because of this, it is not possible to grind the AU sump to get it to fit. Instead, the front cross member of the k-frame can be modified to clear the sump or the sump can be modified to clear the k-frame. Once this is done, fit the sensors from the ef or el engine and install.

pic of a EF/EL k-frame modified for AU engine (taken by BOOSTEDEF). Sump has been cut vertically either side of the sump, the middle pushed forwards and then welded up.


Just wondering if there's anyone that sells the sumps already done? Save me driving around trying to find someone to do it.

theres a mob here in Brisbane called Aussie Auto Recyclers who make up AU engines for direct swap into e-series. included is a modded sump that looks very nice. they're on ebay too and i'm positive they'd ship you one. otherwise just grind the front centre fin off and it'll fit anyway.

I once made a bigger oil sump on an engine, you have to have a lot of time on your hands to make one your self....

I just made a template of my old oil sump and weilded together some that fits....

I made it to be able to hold an extra litre of oil.....

I think this is some thing you could do to make it fit as well.

Cheers.
