Engine oil sump modification

Before I could assemble my engine, I had to do a modification to the oil sump. The engine comes from a piper Seneca, and is born with rear facing fuel servo. That’s no good on the RV, but luckily the sump is prepared in the casting for forward facing fuel servo.
All that is needed is some skilled machining work…

A great friend of mine owns a nice innovative machining shop, and one of his best employees agreed to help me out.
