Hi All,


Just replacing my leaking oil feed pipe between the block and oil filter housing.


The old one came off easily but it left the rubber olive in the block.  I assume I need to remove this before fitting the replacement?


It looks like it's broken up slightly and I don't really want bits of it in my engine.


Any tips for getting it out without dropping bits down the hole in the block?

Any time that you have this sort of problem, pack the hole with rough, hairy string, covered with lots of grease.


When you have finished, pick out the bits that you can see with tweezers. and then carefully pullout the string.
