  1. Is indeed 1/4 NPT, turns out they are measured differently so very close in size.
  2. 1/4 NPT, makes more sense!
  3. Seems to be 1/2" unf, seems a bit odd to me though that there is little available in that size other than sump plugs.
  4. I got one out no worries, the machinist did the other as it was locked solid. I wanted to get the most out of the hot tanking. Need to know the size to get replacements. He drilled and used a snap on ezy out type of tool.
  5. They look ridiculously good.
  6. Anyone know what thread the coolant drain plugs are either side of the cleveland block? They are different to the oil gallery plugs, tried that already.
  7. Ive seen worse, at least its all steel. I rarely get the sizing right either.
  8. Whats the colour code on the XF? Lots of potential.
  9. Either Dove Grey or Medium grey, check your trim code on the build plate. Nice car!
  10. I always enjoy watching your progress.
  11. Thats the wrong way, that lip goes on the inside.
  12. I like Dave's idea. Next harvesting of the money tree should bring guages.
  13. Engine looks good inside too, should be sweet.
  14. Chain guide, Always broken. Don't stress. The fan nut is a LH thread, hit the corner off the nut with a chisel or screwdriver and a hammer. Give it a sharp tap in the direction you want it to go, usually works for me.
  15. Use a puller. Put the bolt back in a bit first (without the washer) so you push on the bolt head instead of destroying the thread in the crank.
