Re: 1200GTO servicing project notes

Good idea about using extractor bits, if the plugs are not “mushed” inside ..
 
    But, if the AP-900/1200 Delrin plugs are pushed in so far, that they “mushroom-head” into the space beyond the threads, then there is no way that the screw extractor bit, or even the AP Tool,  will unscrew the originally smooth, but now “thread-impressed Delrin”, or pull it out without fracturing the plastic plug. Happened to mine, requiring complete disassembly to get the plug pieces out.

Dale thanks for commenting. I have a 1200 GTO that I bought brand new from AP in July 2009. No problems yet with delrin clutch plugs getting stuck or seized & hoping it stays that way 🤞
