Hp 179 in a land rover

Hi,

I have a siezed hp179 in an old landy.

I have been able to get the fly wheel going a bit , maybe 3” to the right and left. Dosing the cylinders with diesel. In order to help things along , i was wondering if anyone can tell me what size the bolts are that fit onto the harmonic balancer so i can make up some kind of wrench.

Cheers,

David

If it's seized valves, trying to turn it over can be disastrous.

I would remove the plugs and all the rockers and try again otherwise you'll bend pushrods.

Then free up the valves by tapping them down with an hammer and wooden block.
