I am at the stage of rebuilding my V12 (1974) after taking 3 years to get 5 snapped head-studs out of the block.
My first challenge is to size the new rear-main seal.
I appreciate this will have been discussed numerous times before but I have a new idea…
I’m having trouble getting the tools. I’m in UK and there is a place which sells/hires them for a reasonable fee but they don’t have them in stock.
Being in a rush to get on with it and having a spare crankshaft at my disposal I was thinking I could just cut part of that off and use it in place of the tools (JD17B and adaptor for V12 JD17B-1).
Is this ridiculous or genius?
