Rmcea Offline OP
I have a 1950 GMC with a 216 engine. The engine has a broken oil line that runs from the block inside the side cover up to the rocker arm. The problem is I cannot get the line out of the larger fitting in the block. I have loosened the line fitting but the line is stuck inside the larger fitting that screws into the block. The larger fitting will unscrew part of the way. I have attached a picture.
Does anyone have any suggestions that would help me

It is attached to the fitting in the block. The whole thing needs to come out. This is from the 38 shop manual but it shows the routing and construction.

Another poster had a similar problem.

Many of the classic Chevrolet parts websites sell a repair kit.
