    Ah cock... In a word.. As i am not a welder.
  4. Soaked them for a while and they still won't move. Anyone got any magical ways of removing these, they're rusted out and taking the nuts off when removing the exhaust has damaged the thread.
  5. Got it all Off using a paint scraper. And new one now on and sump back on.
  6. Today was able to fot the new sump seal, rocker cover gasket, new oil filter, new fuel sender and new spark plugs. The old fuel sender had rusted solid.. Guess the tank got left open or empty and water got in..

    Its off and used an impacted, was going to get a flogging spanner, but gently teased off with impact
  10. The one that's on it ain't thin.. Just running it along surface, brand new chisel so nice clean flat edge too.
  11. Have got the sump off my truck and have started to clean it up inside and out, the seal is pretty well on and wondering what the best way of getting it off is. Ive started to use a chisel to get under it and off, but there must be a better way Cheers
  12. Down south. About 2hours drive in a newer car that can do 70 😂
  13. Yeah time I have, getting the truck there, unsure ot will like it ha
  14. Unsure if my old truck will get up that far, and it's not exactly a long way haha might see how well it goes bacl together first haha.. Id definitely not make it to the alps
  15. Where is this? Currently my trucks not on the road haha, carb, manifold, exhaust off, sump pan off 😂 Whats the best way to empty and clean the pan sensibly?
  16. Sounds good, I have the hand throttle installed on my petrol with 'winch throttle' tippex penned onto it 😂
  17. Just need rope. And a new spring on the drive shaft. Its all working though, and I have the holes on my truck as its had one at some stage in its life. One thing I wonder though is if it's engaged will. It juat go, or is it geared so the throttle has to be at a certain point? Im not really familiar with it if im honest. Cheers Adam
  18. So went and saw a mate today and this happened...

    Looking at doing an oil change and want check if the sump plug is reverse threaded or not? Before I start tightening it in error. Cheers Adam
  25. Got some mr muscle oven cleaner out and soaked the engine then pressure washed the block off. It is duck egg blue then, far from spotless but its better that half an inch of crud and oil on it. Bunged the in and outlets before doing so.
