gr8 rich thanks will do that - yes I have a one way check valve I use to test outdrives with. Ill hook it up 2moro and see -

Nicely done.
Have you posted about this at the Moyer Forum?
I did - got a bunch of stinky replies (none which pertained to my question). I just started ignoring them.. In my opinion a bunch of old timers who belong to an elite class of "I bought the manual for $55" - and if you havent/dont, we dont really help you.

Quite ridiculous - hence why I came here (and cruiserforums). Much more helpful folks around here -


fyi I left them as suggested by some old time engine guys who really know their stuff on cruiserforums.. plus I kind of agreed - as one chap said, "let sleeping dogs lie". At least I permatexed under the bolt heads "in case" steam tried getting thru..

Sorry to hear you had a less then stellar experience there. Seems to me you did pretty good work and nicely documented too.

When I replaced my engine gaskets I did not use Permatex on the studs and I did/do sometimes get some steam through one bolt. Good call.

f-
Don't forget that stuck parts often respond to judicious heat from a torch. Or, from a dry ice/alcohol slurry. (Freezing works as well as torching.) And then there's PBlaster (sold retila) and Kroil (only available by mail/online) both of which are incredibly different from WD40.
Even with a stud remover, using those other things gives you a head start. LocTite and such break down and release with high heat, too.

hi guys, I left them as is and just used a little permatex aviation under the head bolts - I used kroil over 3 days..then tried with a 1/2" impact wrench and stud remover - it was not budging so i just left them all..

Motor is running smooth as butter!
