sump replacement

21 June 2008 - 03:22 PM

I need to replace the sump on my 1998 1.3 fiesta encore (endura engine) due to serious rust.
Anyone got any tips on what sort of job this is likely to be. The research I have done so far has produced conflicting results from being a PITA to a reasonably easy job. The haynes manual indicates the exhaust manifold and starter motor need to come off. Also is the gasket a one piece or four piece for this model? Also any advice on where to get a new sump at a reasonable cost. Seem to be about 40-00 on ebay to 120-00+ from Ford.
