24 DB crank hole cover wont come off?!?

Recommended Posts

Guest

I just purchased a 24 DB roadster. The crank hole cover will not come off when it is turned. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

The cover is cast iron and threads through the splash apron hole into the engine. There should be a gasket to seal oil leakage. It unscrews by using the square end of the crank tool in the cover receptical. You might want to use some other correct fit square tool that you can develop more leverage (read torque) with. I would hesitate to do any banging on the cover, you may shatter it.

YOU SAY THE COVER WILL NOT COME OFF WHEN YOU TURN IT.DOES THIS MEAN THAT THE COVER TURN OR IS THE HOUSING THAT IT FITS IN TURNING?IF THE COVER IS TURING YOU MAY HAVE STRIPED THEADS ON THE CAP OR HOUSING.

I had the same problem. I had to use an impact wrench with short bursts and mine came loose. Turned out I had bought one of the reproductions sold by a DB supplier had the wrong threads. I replaced mine with an old original and have not had the problem again.
