Job Done! 🙂
The door wouldnt budge by kicking the engine over so i got a couple of nails the same diameter as the oil pump bolt holes, Slipped them in and used them the wiggle the door free!
No silicon thank heavens, but it hasnt been apart for a while. Refitted with a new gasket. All this fuss just to fit a new beak to the pilgrim!!! If only the old one came out in one piece?! 😉
Thanks again for the advice 🙂
