As a rule, I don't like using anything that pushes against the block, particularly with an impact force, such as a pickle fork. You risk damaging the seals, main bearings, and the block itself if you're not careful.
Ah okay that makes more sense thanks for the advice.

referring to the register
Could you elaborate that for my ignorance?
