Are there any recommended local manufacturers of sumps, for a Holden 308, that offer a good fit to the block? It doesn't need to be a high capacity type but internal baffles would be nice.
If not, is there a better other source?

edit: For an HX.

ASR sumps are locally made and are good quality.

Originals no good?

I'm currently sourcing an original sump to see if it also leaks at the rear. I originally thought it was the rear main (when running in the engine) but it turns out that the "locally manufactured" sump doesn't seal well. I'm using a rubber gasket with a bead of silicon on each of the metal mating surfaces. It is a sump with a higher capacity and internal baffles.
Before naming the manufacturer I want to check with an OE sump and wanted to research other known good sump suppliers. This post was inspired after speaking with the manufacturer and hearing them say "pressed steel pans are not very good", yet that is what they sold me under the banner of high quality.

I use ASR (had several versions) on my race engines... top quality
(and they come with matching pickup and dipstick)

have had a few other brands...but the later standard factory sumps with baffle and scraper
is actually better (with a guaranteed fit and a pickup that matches)
