My block is down the engineering place at the moment. Because I'm going to wash it all out.
Only one problem. I haven't managed to get the oilway plugs out. I'm talking about the access plugs at each end. One is buried in the water pump hole, the other is where the gearbox bell housing would bolt on.
I've WD40d them, blowtorched them, impact drivered them. But no joy yet.
I'm giving them a final chance or else they'll be drilled out.
Are they really supposed to be this tight?
