My buddy bought a TBI Engine from the same junkyard i got mine at. He's putting it in 89 Caprice. Ugly car if you ask me. But anyway, he removed the block off plate to the fuel pump and there is a fuel push rod in there. We tried to get it out but its stuck. When we hand cranked the engine, it spun fine. Is this going to damage his engine? Is there a better way to get it out? Its already mounted in the car. Any suggestion would be helpful. Thanks.
