put some new oil in it and the oil started coming out of the water side of the inlet manifold, i removed the rocker cover and under the rocker's there is 2 2pence size push caps that have fallen out so started removing the rocker screws and two are well and truly stuck, i am using a manual impact driver and it has destroyd the tip  Shocked think i will have to weld a nut to the screw head and undo it that way Mad
i am using the sj inlet manifold, exhaust, flywheel, clutch and wireing. i will use the vitara starter and alternator  Very Happy

get an exact size in mm and ill get you the core plugs for your head.

it has to be exact tho and a pic would be great.

also, try to tighten the screws with the impact driver slightly first, then theyll come out easier.

if you want a hand, i might be able to help next weekend?
