TOPIC: Has the garage damaged my sump?

Has the garage damaged my sump? 1 year 10 months ago #39874

Hello everyone,
After my very excited purchase of my X 1/9 I thought I would change the oil.

I got the oil and filter. I didn’t have a 12mm hex so gave the parts to my local garage who have worked on my classic mini and merc 190e.

The guy calls me and says the oil is dripping from the sump plug.

He says there shouldn’t be a sump washer as the plug is tapered and the thread inside the sump is sheared.

Does this happen?

What’s the solution?
He wants to drill the hole, rethread it and put a bigger sump plug in.
New sump?
Or just put a washer on it?

It wasn’t dripping oil before.

Any help would be much appreciated.
