Well guys I need some advice before I mess something up. I am replacing the Head Gasket on my 1957 850. I have recieved lots of excellent advice so far but now I am actually starting the project. The Oil tube that must be removed is very tight. I tried to pry gently on it but it want budge. Am I doing something wrong or should I go ahead and put some more pressure on it. I don't want to loose the gromlet at the bottom and have to fish it out. I have posted a picture of the tube. Thanks for the help.

Clay

Take the line loose at the front of the rocker arms so you can swing the tube.Then get after it. A small block of wood to pry with as you turn the line back and forth is some times helpfull . Some of these are very very difficult to get out. You will not loose the seal at the bottom as it is in a "groove" and can't get out untill the oil line is out.

As Wayne says take it loose and you can then rotate it so as to loosen it up and pull up at the same time

Thanks Old and Wayne. I didn't want to go to pulling too hard and break something. Sometime I get in too big a hurry and break something when a simple stop and think would have prevented it. Its raining here, Central Louisiana, and I may not get to do anything else today. Will let you know how it works out.

Thanks

Clay

Got it. Just didn't want to get bullish and break something. A little twist and pull and it came right out. You guys are great. I'm sure I'll be posting again as I progress.

Thanks again

Clay
