Sump guard

Post by Paul D »

Looking to fit a sump guard to my Australian Moke.
Has anyone used these? Thanks

Hi Paul,
I guess this will fit on all Minis (inc Mokes) but the only problem I can envisage are the pre drilled holes on the sump guard. Fine if you have a standard Mini but does your Moke already have the holes on the front of the subframe for an Aussie sump guard? If so, I think it unlikely the holes would match the new guard so you may have to drill more holes in the guard which could weaken it. You'd have to get some measurements from them to see how far off the holes would be.
Maybe you could order one without the holes pre-drilled?

Hi Dean,
That’s a good point regarding holes plus I’ve not checked if my Moke has fixings already in place for sump guard. I guess it’s a Australian sump guard or one without holes I did like this one being aluminium makes it nice and light.
Thanks for the info.
