Recommended Posts

hi guys,


im new to the forum and i have just purchased my first classic impreza but and im in the middles of taking the engine apart ready for the rebuild but when trying to undo the crank case water jacket bolts i have one round off on me, if anyone has any ideas how to get the bolt out would be great.


cheers guys

Cut the head off then screw a suitable nut down the thread followed by a 2nd nut dome up tight to the 1st nut. then undo with the spanner on the 1st nut which locks against the 2nd nut and will undo the bolt. Also handy for Removing studs.

Or if you want a handy workshop gadget then invest in a set of Irwin bolt grips.
