Made this little video after loosing a plug in the tinware yesterday. Hopefully it will help others.
Cheers, I’ve removed and bench tested. She’s stuffed. Off to pick up a new one tomorrow.
Delete. Inside the engine bay. Better put that bolt back in before something falls out.
Where is the top bolt for the starter? I’ve undone the bottom one, and what I thought was the top one but it not coming out.

Yeah I read that but it only confused me more. The right flap (drivers side) is closed in the article. Mine is open and kept open by the spring. Does...
Question. What position should the cooling flaps on a type 4 engine be in when the engine is cold? On mine the drivers side (right) is open and the...
Good tip Les. I hope to bench test before I re-install the motor. Hopefully they won't leak.
