 Engine Block Water Leak

My 1999 TC33D has a anti-freeze leak at the engine block drain fitting (right side). NH service told me that I need to cut a channel into a 1 1/16'' deep socket, in order to clear the fitting's elbow, to remove the fitting. Is there a better way? Another tool? Can I use a 4" cutting wheel to cut the hardened steel? Thanks in advance.

Have you tried just opening and shutting the drain valve a few times while the engine is hot to flush any crud out of the valve? Might work; you just might luck out.

 Engine Block Water Leak

It's not really a valve. It's a big nut with a 1/4'', 45 degree elbow coming off of it to a low point on the tractor where it meets a two input drain valve. The other end is connected to the radiator. The leak appears to be coming from the threads. It looks like it needs to be re-tefloned. It's so tight in there. I took the dip stick out and looks like I would need to take the oil filter off. The oil doesn't need to be changed, that's when I called the dealer.

I have 2 of those (handy tools)! Laughing out loud Buy either a buffalo set of sockets and butcher one up or just buy One socket from sears. Pay for the shipping and I would send you one free since I really only need 1. Let me know I could get it out on Wed. afternoon to you, I could send it to ya and you could send back the stamp cost at the postal service.. (no handling charge of course! Laughing out loud) just the postage.

StephenR; Don't know if you're familliar with "Crowfoot" wrenches, they're simply an open end wrench without a handle. They have a square hole that fits a 3/8 or 1/2 in common socket extension depending on the size of the wrench right near the base of the wrench. They are meant for close quarter hard to reach things like you mention. There biggest drawback is that you're not surrounding the fitting, or nut what ever your working on like a regular socket will with contact points, just two sides of it like any common open end wrench, so if the fitting is too tight and you pull too hard they will "Dub" over the corners on the fitting, then it's back to the head scratching stage again. Others may have better solutions, so see what they have to say too. Frank.

Brokenarrow,
So you've cut a deep socket before? Will my 4" grinder with a cutting disk work ok?

The angle grinder with metal grinding wheel or cutting wheel will cut the socket.
You might find an oxygen sensor socket in that size. They resemble a deep-well socket with about 1/4 of the socket wall cut away.

I'm prety sure there's a discussion of this exact problem as well as the solution somewhere in the archives. Saying that's easy but finding it may not be so easy.

I got one at the local Advance Auto store; they are usually hanging out where you can look at them so you can see if they have the right size.
NAPA or any other auto supply store should have them.

Probably be cheaper (but more work) to find a regular socket and cut it.

Good luck,
Bill
