A barrel with the washing soda, battery charger, dip 1/2 at a time will have that paint and rust free in 2 days... no sweat or chemicals...

DONALD - Depending on what your trying to get paint off of, I've heard oven cleaner works well. Don't think I'd try it on fiberglass, just steel.

Ladies and Gentlemen-

I hate to say it but I'm having to part out a 125 (sorry Kraig). It's just tooooo far gone...a rust bucket for sure. I removed the engine today and got 8 of the 9 head bolts out but can't budge the one. And yall know where it is...right beside the exhaust. I don't want to break it and have tried lots of PB, heat and even pounded on the head with a brass hammer. It's more like heavy tapping, not pounding. I've tried two different 1/2" impact wrenches with no results. The bolt on the other side of the exhaust had a powder-like substance all the way down the threads. I've never seen that before.

It's a good block and can't see just letting it get rained on (no room in the barn for cripples) so the engine will go in a shed for now.

Any and all will be appreciated.....Wayne

OK-

I just went and tapped about five taps then put the impact on it and was half successful. I got the top half of the *%$#@ bolt out.

CRAP! Time to get the drill out and deal with a grade 8.

Any ideas now?

How about a small chunk of C4 or maybe some Thermite ??

Maybe you will get fortunate now and some PB or other product will wick down there and loosen things.
