    Block Oil Galley Acess Points ,Right Head Not Getting Oil Big Help Needed

    Anyone have a diagram or can tell me If there is acess to the block oil galley because my 2000 cat isn't getting oil to the right head .It isn't the head ,no oil is coming up from the block on the right side. A while ago the belt broke and my daughter continued to drive it home and it got pretty hot . This car has had it out for me ever because of that. Bad cam bearing , jumped timing,bent valves. After I replaced the serpentine belt and idler pulley I changed the oil and The Filter was deformed and wasn't filering and there was a wad of plastic that looked like the inside of the filter and was half way melted together. I do belive some of that crap got into the oil galley and is plugging that right side . I don't know what i can do to dislodge or melt this away , I had the head off and blew 120psi down into where it comes up from the block with no luck . Thanks for any help

    I can't seem to find a diagram of the oil pathways and the head has been removed again, the amount of dust and cat footprints on this car is a sight to see , only been in the garage for 9 months. I'm still thinking plastic pieces form the failed oil filter are plugging the oil path way up to the right head , I can get a piece of coathanger to go so far then the pathway turns , I'm going to try some drain cleaner to see if it will soften the plastic enough so I can plow it out. wish me luck.
