Maybe a daft question - split pin removal

Easyout might be less snapable then a tap, not that I’ve ever got on well with them :w

Maybe a daft question - split pin removal

It may expand and make it worse? That being said, it can’t do much harm trying.

Think I would probably just drill it out.

I’m also not sure that the car in the foreground is a Sabre. It certainly looks a lot like one but several details are wrong, for example the rear wings.
I think the plate reads DB Le Mans which I googled quickly

oil pressure figures after scare

I’ve just checked my Sierra Haynes and all it covers is oil seal change..

The info must be somewhere, those diffs were used in a lot of motors.
