As a way for people to compare their 7 setup for sump clearance, how about a list of what people have, with what tyre sizes?
(Add your info to the thread, and I'll update this main list from those posts.)

Eugene - 85mm - 185/70r13 - 2L Zetec wet sump
Uncle Albert - 75mm - 185/60r13 - 2L Zetec wet sump
admaraujo - 90mm - 185/60r13 - 1.6 K-series wet sump (SV)
s47 - 80mm - 185/70r13 - 2L Zetec wet sump (S4)
BigCol - 75mm - 175/55R13 - 1.6 Sigma (SV)

Orange Appled - 90mm

How can you have 90mm?
That is a huge figure for 185/60r13 tyres... are your lower wishbones parallel to the ground, or slanted up towards the chassis?

I really don't know the answer to that. Wishbones are parallel... Will try to find some time to better measure that...
