Removing water temperature sensor from 1937 Buick Straight 8
I'm just starting a frame off restoration on my 1937 Buick Roadmaster (320 cu inch straight 8) and have been working to dissassemble the dash & interior before bodywork and paint.
I have the instuments cluster removed, except have not been able to pull the water temp sensor out of the engine block.
The nut on the engine was easy to remove, but the sensor appears to have seals on it and I have not been able to pull it out with needle nose pliers.
1) Is it correct that sensor should pull straight out?
2) Can anyone give me tips on how to remove it without damaging the sensor?
3) Does anyone know what the seals are made of and is there something I could use to disolve them?
