What not to do concerning a block heater

Post by Drache on Sat Mar 21, 2015 4:21 pm

Posted on another forum:

Apparently some people drill holes in them, ram a screw into them to try to pull them out that way. That appears to be what this guy did...tried it a few times too. The light colored area in the bottom left of the hole is actually a piece of a bolt that he cut off and installed to plug the hole he put right into the cylinder ! LOL.

The engine started burning antifreeze (SHOCKING). We put a head gasket in it, and it still leaked. One of our guys had sense enough to roll the engine over when he had the head off and found it. LOL. First pic is of the frost plug side. Second is the inside of the cylinder with the hole in it.

Hahaha! Must of had a carbide bit, lol. How thick did he figure the frost plug was...must have been pushing hard on the drill was quite some time.

If the piston was at the right spot he might have a hole in there too! now that could make for an even bigger mess.

I wonder if you could sleeve that cylinder ok.
Dam I've never even seen that before.

Yes it can be sleeved, just completed a build on a Ford 289 and had to get one cylinder done.
