Engine and Transmission / Re: Windage tray

That's great, thanks. I suspected that would be the case, just a bit annoying as it's a new pump and the pickup bolts are loctited in. Any issues with the support bracket, it looks like it'll contact the tray?

I've rebuilt my engine again since then, I'm fairly sure I only used one this time.  Also seem to recall that you can get it on by loosening the oil pump pickup with out fully removing it.  I'ts probably four years ago when I last did this so I could be remembering wrongly.

Did you also fit the tray before the oil pump?
Haynes suggests sealant on both the sump and crankcase surfaces, with a tray that'd be all 4 surfaces? Overkill?
This is maybe me just being paranoid as it's my first engine build, and i've complicated it by using a Lupo crank sensor, this means i now have a rubber gasket sealing the flywheel end. This makes me think double gasketing is the way to go.

It's a long time since I fitted mine but I'm pretty sure I just used some sillicon sealer between the block face and the tray and then a single gasket as normal between the tray and the sump.

Hows it going guys. Ive gotten myself interested in mk2f polos through a guy off Instagram with a grey g40 polo. Would I be crazy to try to import one into the US? Any advice? Ive owned 4 mk2 golfs/jettas in my life so im well versed with those cars but not so much polos. Thanks!
