Yesterday's project: tearing apart the BMW M10 engine from my old parts car! Crankshaft is out; cylinder head is off. The pistons are rusted in, however, and will require some ‘persuasion’ to come out: generous amounts of Kroil, followed by the therapeutic application of the BFH! As you can see, I have already put the BF Socket Wrench to work! Mr. Natural says: Get the Right Tool for the Job!
The crankshaft is out.
I don’t use it often, but this monster 3/4 inch drive sure comes in handy sometimes!
I love to pull cars to pieces to see how they work! What’s YOUR Superpower?
Pistons are all out now, btw, I am pleased to say! The first two came out easily, but the last two did NOT want to come out! But they did come out, since I followed Mr. Natural’s advice!
So .... now what? Should I rebuild the engine? Or perhaps re-purpose it into some sort of a steel sculpture? Like.... say... a chess table? Hmmm. ;) Stay tuned, folks! :)
