How to tell a 1300 from a 1600 Crossflow Sump

Hi,

I have a lone XFlow sump which was never with an engine. Rear bowl but how can I distinguish a 1600 from a 1300?

Thanks in advance

Mike

The 1600 version is deeper - the crankshaft will hit the 1300 one (don't ask how I know... )

There are a few pictures of my 1600 sump here, where I describe how I shortened it for my car. Maybe you can get some clues from them.
