About all has been said really, BUT please DO let us know the outcome and fix, so that we can refer others (or ourselves) with similar problems in future.

Looking forward to result.  *smile*

Solved. Between cleaning up the alloy sump plate putting on new gaskets I managed to put the screen on the wrong way covering the pick up pipe  WHAT A TWAT

We've all done it or similar mate - it's called "the human condition", store for future reference and move on.

G'day BSA500.
Don't fell too bad mate. We ALL do it at some point with something or other.  *clap* for letting us know it was something simple.
Out of all the things I've lost it's my memory I miss the most.
Cheers
