I pulled off the oil pan on my '42 H on Saturday. Looking from underneath, two pistons look bad, real bad.
Question: What is the best way to get them out when they are so corroded in? Can I buy new Connecting rods? I already have the pistons/sleeves soaking in Penetrating Oil. Can I pound them out from underneath?
When they Magnaflux a block, does it need to be completely taken down? I want to do the least amount I can, but realize that I will probably need to add sleeves, pistons, and rings. How do I tell if the main bearings should be replaced?
How do I take off the clutch linkage, plate and all that rot when I cannot turn the crank?
Boy, I am sure full of questions, huh? Nothing more though, I hope.
Thanks for your advice, all you Red Steel Pony jockeys.
