    Just A little tut in removing Ve Commodore sump

    Remove Drive Belt
    Remove Balancer rattle off balancer bolt use a three claw balancer puller ideally the puller to use is one that goes into the balancer spokes if using an outside puller be careful not to separate the pulley from the rubber mount once off
    undo three lowest front cover bolts 13mm
    under vehicle undo all sump bolts there are two in a bit of a spot above the rack a second person comes in handy here to remove them
    right at the back of the sump there are two 10mm bolts that need to come out and finally three lower bolts from the bell housing

    there is no need to lower the K frame or lift the motor as the sump will come out

    on the sump there are three lever points one at the RHF and two at the rear on each side of the sump a normal size screw driver fits in perfect now it's just a case of lever the sump to crack the seal you wont need to do this to the front just lever the two rear and draw the sump out i should note the rear lever points are near the last bolts on the side of sump at the top you will see the casting shape to know what i'm talking about

    thats pretty much it very simple operation as the oil pick up is actually bolted to the sump and not the motor

    This was done on my 2008 ve 60th leo after replacing my timing chains but should be pretty close to most of the VE motors

    I did use a 3 jaw puller, but latched on the inside and held with a cable tie. Who would have thought it would work.
