Burn In Hell!! you stupid #$#@..

I have finally realized what the samurai's production flaw is. Those stupid Philips bolts!!! No matter how hard I try i cannot take a single one off the sammy. I know of a few ways to get a rusted solid bolt off.... with ye old cutting wheel and grinder.
Now i am asking you suzuki profesionals how do you guys strugle to get the philip bolts off.

-Thanks

Die grind a big 'ol groove strait across the head. Use a BIG flathead and a wrench for leverage. This works, but sometimes the head snaps off.

Heat them up a little to melt the gunk the Japs put on the threads, it helps.

Re: Burn In Hell!! you stupid #$#@..

Oldzuk gives the best advice. When taking my Sami apart, I was having the same problem. Then I saw that note. When I put heat to the head of the screw for a few seconds, it came right out. Well, almost. There are always some that are stubborn, but they can be done. I used a Dremel Tool and cut a groove across the top and used a BIG screwdriver, and eventually got them out. Best thing to use for heat is one of those mini torches. I picked one up at Grizzly for $15. Radio Shack has them also.

I've always used a small chisle to break them free then a #3 philips head to bring them the rest of the way out.

Re: Burn In Hell!! you stupid #$#@..

Thanks for the good tips guys. Also do you guys know what size that bolts are (most common ones), i decided to replace all of them and im just trying to get an idea of cost.

Nice homemade tool there. I will have to make me one of those!!

Re: Burn In Hell!! you stupid #$#@..

Before I got my impact driver I used a vise grip with good results and lots of frustration. Now I use an impact driver and first tighten the screw and then loosen it. Works for me. I think I payed about $9 for the driver at Schucks.
