    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

    If you had that part disassembled, cleaned, etc. and a welder could not fix it, you might not need a new part, but you do need a new welder.
    Yes, I am a welder! Cast aluminum is the "junk" of the aluminum family, and it is porous. Oil has a way of hiding and fouling up the job, but it can be done. Search for another welder or if the welding is structurally sound but leaks, try a bit of JB Weld Epoxy (hardware store) on the inside to seal the reservoir.

    This probably won't help much but I have an E-60 base that is in the same shape as yours (before your machine shop got ahold of it).

    You can have it for shipping costs.

    I can tell you that my customer was used it this way all last season (I think he was lucky!!!).

    I would rather not talk about it as I feel the same thing could happen to me.

    Brian will contact you via email in the morning Victor.
