      My favourite thread of the year!!

      My belief is the hammerite is holding the tinfoil in place.
      Tin foil and glue wouldn't still be holding.
      Glue and hammerite wouldn't hold.
      It's the goldilocks effect of all three, and you, sir, deserve to be in the new years honors list.

        I think you're all wrong. Before fixing the hole, all the oil had leaked out. Thus, although the hole is now covered it's not actually holding anything in any more.

        That's my thinking anyway.

            I did actually get a new sump, after lots of searching managed to find an aftermarket one on eBay. It's sitting in the garage, I'll fit when I do my annual service.

                The only trouble is that if it does fail spectacularly and dump oil on the tyres, it could be quite expensive especially if it causes a crash.
                I have had the pressure release valve on a Rover 214 stick on me and that blew the oil seal on he crankshaft and spewed oil out. I was lucky to control the slide that resulted as I was not hanging around and had the family in the car at the time.
                It cost me four new tyres as well as the engine repair.
                I've not failed. I've just found 10.000 ways that don't work!

                  Its not a pressurised sump, so shouldn't go like that, it'll just start leaking a bit again.
