    Well, somehow i busted the bottom of my sump base on my meyer E-60, right where the bolt goes thru to mount it on my truck- well not knowing better my local machine shop thought they would drill a new hole just above it.
    bad idea- they hit oil...
    so i tried to have it welded but it just wont hold up - still leaks.
    i guess i need to buy a new sump base i believe the meyer # is 15726
    question , does anyone have a used one they would mind selling.
    if so about what can i get one for?
    or any other ideas?

    thanks
