AENLD (part 6) pump and sump.
Prior to installing the oil pump I primed it using the bottom half of a one gallon tea jug (like milk jug) to hold the oil. The pump was easy to reinstall.
Next the engine gets attached to the heavy steel plate you see in the lower right quadrant of the picture. I wanted to do it this evening but my back betrayed me. I dumped the bolts for the base into the green towel which then dumped them on the floor. I was not into crawling around and sorting them out.
It is a good thing I did not get the base bolted on I forgot the oil screen! Only 12 little bolts to pull and replace
OK inspected and did some final cleaning of the screen with a tweezers. Pulled the sump and installed it then replaced the sump and bolted the engine to the heavy metal plate it came on.
