    The problem with that being?

    The Metric system is absolute pish in terms of doing real work, extremely complicated for most things.

    All sorted with a new sump and 4 days on, no leaks from either sump or sump plug.

    Whilst working under they found the front engine mount was split so replaced that. All in under €400, and as it's the first costs on the car for 4 years I'm quite happy. No doubt, Reinaldo would have had a small cow at that price but heh ho.

    What do people think of these? Seems a little more convenient than a pump.

    Sounds way expensive, and the check valve part is a bit superfluous, why not just an double ended insert (like male to female) which would screw into the delicate sump thread once and provide a secondary thread for a plug/cap.
    A ball check valve must restrict too ....
    You're so money supermarket and you don't even know it!
