So I had grabbed whatever tool was at hand and was scraping an old gasket off the timing cover when my pal Kenny stopped by.
He took one look at what I was doing and started to laugh and said "Boy I've never seen anyone rebuild an engine with an axe before."
I told him it is a hatchet.
He said "Yeah, a hatchet job for sure. Do those guys on the forums know what a hack mechanic you are?. Here, let me have your phone so I can get a picture for evidence."
I'm not sure what I'll do yet but there Will be retribution Smile

Howdy Ultradog,

From my viewpoint, there's no doubt about your mechanical abilities. I see three skinned knuckles in the photo. If you don't draw blood, you are not "into" the job!

From the title I expected to find you liberating some relic from a growing tree.

You need a fireman's axe with a hook on the opposite side to pull that seal.

I think you need a bigger hammer. Maybe a 16 pounder....
