Default Re: Stuck engine

Too bad the pistons are on TDC/bdc.
I took off the rocker arms om a Ford V4 once and machined a plug that would fit in the spark plug hole with a grease nipple.
Poured ATF oil in the cylinder and used the grease pump to fill up the rest.

With 90 mm pistons and up to 600bars from the grease pump I could theoretically push the piston with 45 tons...

The crank moved ca one degree for every pump action [emoji3]

The engine would not start even though we got the pistons moving. The pin for the fuel pump was also stuck because of dirty Old oil. Pulled the pin, cleaned it and the engine started [emoji3]
