    just pulled of my manifolds in order to install a set of headers. about 3 weeks before the job, i started shooting all the bolt heads with PB Blaster. i wanted to soak them good because i have read so many posts about guys breaking and striping bolts when installing headers. bottom line is this stuff worked great. every bolt came right out - once i hade all the junk out of the way (AC bracket, heat shields…) i pulled each manifold off in about 10 minutes. i have used other penetrating fluids, but this stuff really eats at the corrosion like nothing else i have seen…

    Tell me about it. PB blaster works miracles. It has saved me from breaking bolts more times than I can remember.

    We used it at the boneyard all the time,although I wasn't any more impressed with it than the other stuff like Cyclo Break Away,or CRC brand,Liquid Wrench,etc.My dad worked for the local gas company,and he used to get some stuff in a small squeeze bottle called TRIZOIL--it says on the label its 100% castor oil!and it works great.Be better in a spray can though,dont know if its still available,or sold to the general public.
    We found the PB Blaster also lives up to its name when sprayed on yellow jackets--I think I sprayed more on them than rusty bolts my last trip to the boneyard,after ripping a nest in half when I opened the door on a junker! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
