dude i would be very worried about a big flat razor blade it will block the pick up screen and starve your engine of oil on a hot summers day a razor blade will one day block half your pick up and there goes your bearings :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

if its laying flat on the bottom of the sump it wont come up. unless you oil pick-up preetymuch sucks the bottom of the sump into itself.. then you have more issues..

yeah i dont think it would get stuck on the pick up, i was just worried about it possibly getting in the way of the crank or other moving bits. espically now that the magnetic tool broke in there aswell. but i think i might pull it offf anyway and change the gasket, its weaping a bit and since i have half my motor pulled apart anyway i may aswell do it properly, my head is in getting ported and polished so i think i may aswell chage the gasket and get it out, even tho its a C*** of a job.... :evil:

Yeah it'll probably be fine, but it's not really hard to change it, so I'd probably do that, I reckon it's easier to pull the motor than the K frame but it's up to you.

ok so removing the sump is something i never want to do ever again. haha. its all done now, head gasket is in. as really rattly when i first started it, probably due to my head being serviced and having nill oil on it, drove it for 1km and it stoped. good as new
