Thanks, its 40 years since I trained as a mechanic, and I've never heard the Sump called a Carter!

Maybe if you worked for DAF you would have heard the term

Dutch for sump

a little offtopic all this, but le 'carter moteur' in French = sump.
more here > http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carter_%28m%C3%A9canique%29
Which mentions a J. Harrison Carter > http://www.historywebsite.co.uk/Museum/Transport/bicycles/Sunbeam.htm
"a prominent feature of all Sunbeam machines was J. Harrison Carter’s oil tight chain lubricator and gear cover. The casing contained a small oil bath which lubricated the chain to reduce wear"

Take off your sump plate and check the non return ball in the pick up tube isn't obstructed or stuck.

Like Americans call a gear box a transmission.
Must be hard for those that have English as a 2nd language.

Strange that we Brits should be so anti "Johnny Foreigner" when we are a mixture of so many races (conquerors ) and our language (English) is a miss mash of Latin (Romans) French (Plantagenet's) and lots of other Europeans (Saxons,Danes) not to mention the Celts, Picts .....

According to a quick internet search, the dutch word for sump is "vergaarbak".

So, Carter is actually the Portugese  word for sump......... That explains my ignorance, I only know a few Portugese words, mainly - cerveja [Beer], batatas fritas [Potato Chips] and praia [Beach]. And now I can add the word for sump...  *smiley4*

Obrigado meus companheiros.

Well my A7 is running the old fashioned way and after work I do "rustieke tochtjes" through the polder for fun. I'm leaving the filter out.
I want to introduce another dutch technical term for this week, maybe combine it with a price which off course can be collected at my home.
The new word is "ventieldopje"  .......

I could say I'm just clever -  but suspect most of you would remember posts I made that would prove that wrong

So, Carter is actually the Portugese  word for sump.

I wonder if the English word 'catcher' has the same origin as 'carter'. It would seem to have the same meaning in this case.
