Right, so in the middle of assembling my Nissan block and noticed that there is some damage to the oil pan/sump mating surface at one particular point. There is some light gouging and the surface is slightly bent. Im obviously worried about leakage from the oil pan and do have a spare so replacement really isn't an issue. Problem is the sump i had custom made with a winged section to hold a larger capacity and a trapdoor mechanism to help with oil starvation, welding and custom fabrication isn't cheap here in the UK.

With all that said i really dont want to have to just scrap the sump though i know my luck might have ran out this time. Any ideas on how to save this would be much appreciated.

will try and get some images up soon.

pics would be a big help. you cant straighten the pan rail where its bent? dont the nissans use silicone for a gasket anyway? im not seeing a huge problem here.
