Hi again, I finally got the da#% plunger out but not without some collateral damage. After having broken an easy out in my drill hole, I had to resort to using my Dremal to finish the job. As careful as I tried to be, the top of the plunger hole is not in as good of shape as I would like it to be. That being said, how important is the hot start, should I go ahead and put the new plunger and o-ring in, or should I just seal it of with some Permatex and just be done with it. Any more suggestioins?
