Re: Oil Gallery Screwed Plugs

That’s good, all you’ve got to do now is wait for that broken extractor to work itself out when things get hot ! Only joking —-Well I hope I am!! :D

Might be worth getting to know him, these people are getting hard to find. I knew an old boy once, now sadly gone, wouldn’t throw anything away and was very resourceful, he was a one off and I learnt a lot from him.

Re: Oil Gallery Screwed Plugs

I thought you said you’d drilled a hole through the plug to allow the extractor to be used ? Is the extractor still in the hole?

Re: Oil Gallery Screwed Plugs

I imagine the extractor was/is tapered, otherwise knock it through with a suitable diameter punch, if its in the long gallery, punch it out from the other end, using a pretty long bar, assuming the extractor is protruding from the bottom of the plug. Other than that, if you’re clever you may be able...

Another picture

Just been sent a picture of engine from the split screen I posted a while back. Unfortunately this cars for sale category doesn’t allow editing the original post after a certain length of time, which is a nuisance. Hopefully this post can be associated with the original. 0562954D-FAAC-4AFC-9EA2-104E...

Re: photo or picture please.

Sorry can help now, l’ve fitted a flat cover. Still got the brackets but I presume you don’t need a picture of them.

Re: Minor with CAT fitted

Not an intentional pun but it would fit. Cats on leads I think not, Nature can be cruel through predator and pray, it’s the intentional cruelty I object to. I can think of some human animals I’d like to put on a lead though!

I’m all for conservation, we’ve abused and wiped out enough life forms. The current virus is a pertinent example of what happens when inflicting animals to abuse and stress.. Of course not many want so go near that one!
