Hey besides heat...you may want to try 50/50 acetone/ATF.

It has broke every bolt loose I've every attempted it on. It comes with great recomendations and actual scientific research/results...

PB Blaster=ok. A 50/50 mix of acetone & ATF=Best Ever! Here's the cold, hard facts from the April/May 2007 edition of Machinist's Workshop. They did a test of penetrating oils where they measured the force required to loosen rusty test devices. Buy the issue if you want to see how they did the test. The results reported were interesting. The lower the number of pounds the better.

Penetrating oil . Average load .. Price per fluid ounce

None ................. 516 pounds .

WD-40 .............. 238 pounds .. $0.25

PB Blaster ......... 214 pounds .. $0.35

Liquid Wrench ... 127 pounds .. $0.21

Kano Kroil ........ 106 pounds .. $0.75

ATF-Acetone mix.. 53 pounds .. $0.10

Damn It !

Did I Miss another party ?!?!?!?!

Now if we had some frankfurters, beer steins and ooommpa music, Octoberfest would have happened in Arlington.

I have little doubt Mr. Gruff's neighbors would have LOVED that !

This sort of stuff needs more media coverage.
