One thing that has worked for me is to soak a piece of cloth with penetrating oil, place the cloth on the bolt(s), and walk away for a day. You may have be a bit creative with the cloth, but the idea is to keep the bolts "wet" and give the oil time to work in as deep as possible. Then use the long breaker bar to snap the head off the bolt as you cuss like a sailor.



Good luck.

Try the following, take the car out for a spin and bring it up to operating temprature, drive into the garage and try removing those bolts while the engine is still hot (be careful).



Good luck.

Mr. Burns,



I'm sorry. I really didn't mean to be insulting. You are one of my favorite motojournalists, and I thought that it's likely the best course of action. Kind of like your opinions on various bikes. Some of them just aren't worth sinking resources into. I hope I'm wrong and it works out.

JB

Electric impacts are only reasonable facsimiles of the real thing. Get a 1/2" drive air unit and start at 120 psi. Raise as needed.
