V8 because some say "2 heads are better than one"


« : November 30, 2009, 12:28:44 PM »



I guess there is a special tool for this one, and I once battled for many days with much head scratching on how to remove the damn thing. The manual says something useful like "remove and inspect pilot bearing"

Options are:
- special tool
- puller (gotta be a small one though)
- HMT (home made tool)
- heat
- hammer and saw
- grease
- wet paper
- rags
- bread...

I just had to try the last one ;)







Technique:
- push bread through hole until cavity is full.
- insert punch (cylinder head bolt is a perfect size) and hit with rubber mallet.
- repeat until cavity is full.
- hit punch one or two times swiftly.

Bread seems to work faster than paper, Grahame used that method on Sat and it took a little longer, I think the bread spreads more easily in the cavity.
