I am having difficulity removing an engine from a JL 1:64 scale car. It appears to be glued in very tightly to the plastic surrounding it. I plan on replacing it with a mod engine. any help would be appreciated
Motor Issue: I tried drilling it out and my drill bit broke.
Still trying to get the motor out of this JL 1:64 scale camaro. It appears to be glued or rivited in but I'm not sure. I drilled thru a tiny hole under the motor from the bottom up and my Drill bit broke. If I hack it out I will probably destroy the plastic housing surrounding the motor. Just wondering how everyone else performs this of procedure. Thanks....
i know on the olds 442 i did, the engine was kinda... 'hot smushed' in. Basicly the engine had 2 long legs patruding from the bottom of it that aligned up with 2 holes on the chassis, slap it in and heat up the to legs to smash and mushroom them out, kinda like a rivit. But you have to take the base of it off inorder to get to it.
If anyhting, grab a pair of needlenose pliers and start ripping!
Wow, that comment really blew me a away How? With a 1/64 engine crane, of course.LOL LOL, LOL, LOL. That was funny, check out my post at the top, I finally finished the job on the Camaro, I will give myself a grade of C+ on this project, what do you all think? Howard
