Trying to install block heater. Removed undertray and exhaust mani heat shield. The freeze plug with the 14mm allen cutout stares down at me from above as I lay looking up at the motor. But I'm ready. I've purchased the only 14mm allen anything in town- it's a true allen wrench, a large bugger, much too large for any manufacturer to include in a set of allen wrenches. You'd look at it and say, 'who are you kidding, why would I buy a set of allen wrenches with that huge sucker in it?'. So I stick the long end into the freeze plug, I've got a 14mm allen socket and extension on the other end for leverage. So- not enough leverage, even though I torqued the motor around on its mounts and this allen wrench cost me $7.
Hmmm- I think a 14mm 1/2" drive allen in a socket on a short extension, levered by a breaker bar is the only thing that's gonna free that freeze plug....
There's not a whole lot on these cars that's just simple, is there?
