November 22, 2010well i tryed the tap method and i broke the tap of in the tube so we got the broken tap out and my buddie said lets try to heat the block so we started to heat the block then he shut the torch off and it back fired and it blew the valve covers off the heads and into peices
November 22, 2010Oh yeah! If you dcide to heat the block with a torch
be sure a take off the oil filler cap and pull out the
pcv valve. The crankcase is full of explosive fumes !
just joking, I couldn`t resist.
ps: you`re not the first one to do that. I`ve seen
pan gaskets blown out also.
