Dont mean to thread jack but... The vinegar thing works pretty well at cleaning out the crud in the block and intake through the water jacket?

SN95GT302: if it wont turn side to side at all what I would do is hit it with a little liquid wrench and tap, when I say tap I mean TAP!, the shaft of the dizzy with a rubber mallet very VERY lightly. Give it a little more liquid wrench and try turning it again. Thats what I would do.
