Man vs. Manifold - the halftime score

Thanks guys, for the help earlier ...

I also have to thank mother nature for forcing me not to turn wrenches all weekend ... just soaked the bolts a couple (few) times a day for two days !

So, as promised - the halftime score - 13 broken loose, no problems ... 3 snapped off -- none flush w/ the heads (yet, knock wood) !!

I put a borrowed acetylene torch & (borrowed too) vice grips to one of the studs ... no budge - damnit! Ah well, I gave em a good soak & covered it all back up again!

And I can firmly endorse CRC 5-56 penetrating oil & True Value 45 gallon lawn & leaf bags (an excellent fit for the 351) [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

All right! That's progress.
Take your time and don't get "PO'd" at em.
Once they break off flush, you're in for a lot more work.

Re: Man vs. Manifold - the halftime score

On the remaining ones, do try what steve 83 mentioned *tapping* where you can. If the bolt is not accessable, tap on the manifold area surrounding the bolts. He has a very good point there, it shocks the frozen bolts and helps out tremendously, i just didnt mention it cuz i didnt think there would be any room in there for a hammer, well maybe one or two of the manifold bolts [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Excellent idea, if he has an air compressor at home [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: Man vs. Manifold - the halftime score

air chisle??
... i can't picture how that fits in this equation ... doesn't matter, though - no compressor [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

The motor's on a stand, in the driveway (thus the True Value garbage bags [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]) and the manifolds are off, so I can get the 4lb sledge in there anywhere !!

I gave 'em a few more shots of penetrating oil &amp; a couple of raps w/ the BFH, just before dark last night ... looks like I'll have tonight to get them out, then I'm rained out for the rest of the week [img]images/graemlins/crybaby.gif[/img] If this keeps up, I'm gonna have to put everything on pontoons !!

As far as the air chisel, they make all kinds of blunt peening tools to use with them.
