Re: Engine Mount Removal Tool - Homemade

A word of caution, the original tool is designed to prevent the casing lugs from breaking when with-drawing or mounting the mounts using heat , deviate from the design and risk breaking the casing lugs as many others have done in the past , it will then cost you a lot more than £30-£40 .

Re: Oil seal removal [emoji24]

if you cant budge the 4 screws /bolts with a screwdriver or impact, get a long dot punch and tap the corner of the slot anti clockwise carefully or even a thin bar grind to fine point , this will loosen the screws then they will just come out .
