i used a 22mm socket for the main bolt.

I have successfully removed the HB however the new one won't go in properly.

it's as if it is getting stuck somewhere. Any idea's?

nah mate the key hole thingy is fine. the HB will only push in around 1/2 way of the entire length & i can NOT get the bolt into the crankshaft piece so i can screw in the HB.

all fixed. i used a thinner washer & got the bolt to catch on the threads, then i gave the bolt a few good turns & that then pushed the HB in a little more, i then removed the thinner washer & replaced it with the correct size/type washer. Just drove the car from Roxby Downs to Melbourne. All is good apart from oil leaking from the head gasket.
