Hole in sump? A get-you-home fix.

RE: Hole in sump? A get-you-home fix.
Update.
At the end of July I found the repair leaking oil again, it had lasted 7 months. I covered the Pratleys with more GunGum to stop it messing my brick driveway, but that only lasted a day. The following day I wiped the GunGum off with a finger and realised that since I had applied it to a COLD sump it had not hardened and sealed the leak as it had when the oil was hot in the Anysberg. The bus was due for a service so I took the opportunity to remove the sump and have it welded.

Lesson
GunGum is great for a TEMPORARY bush repair on a hot sump. No good when cold. Pratleys is great for a cold, dry repair on clean, bare metal. I used it four times to repair leaks from a rusty petrol tank and not one of them ever leaked again.

Moral
Neve rset off on a bush trip without GunGum AND Pratleys.

Cheers
Colin
