Anyone who has seen a picture like the one below will understand how my afternoon has been.
We took our time, prepared well and ensured everything was clean.
Following the instructions for this motor to the absolute letter and yet life decides to give us this!!!!
I think we just got a bad bolt to be honest, Looking at the end that is at the top you can see almost like a small hole in the metal which wasn't replicated on the piece which got stuck in the block (quite a way down just to make my life a challenge), It wasn't over torqued wrench is brand new and tested lately.
After snapping multiple drill bits and a second set of easy outs we have success.
Almost a full days work our only progress is about $70 worth of bolts down the toilet, $30 worth of easy outs I didn't want, 2 X drill pieces and a second set of easyouts which are toast BUT we have managed to fit the oil cooler adapter plate and lines w00t!
Here's hoping the rest of the week goes far more smoothly
