    Take as many photos as you can. Especially the sump removal so we can get tips and a guide on how it's done. Good luck with it all

    Have you tried the 19mm socket yet? The suspense is killing me. You don't really think Holden had a special socket made just for their dealerships to use do you? It's just a sloppy cheap mass production 19mm.
