R-R PIII - engine sump

Sump pan removed.  The screwdrivers are holding open the two anti-surge flaps.  Although the inner surface is covered in a nasty black film there is very little sludge in the sump.  One or two shiny pieces of metal will need investigating.

The brass pipe carries oil from the strainer , in the centre, to the oil pump.  I wonder what horrors are beneath the rear cover plate?
