Kroil save my life .

Knoil is a live saver . It is not just the bore cleaner . I had 2 frozen bolts in my truck thermostat housing . I try removing the 2 bolts 3 or 4 yrs ago when I put a heater core in my truck . I decide since the bolts frozen and thermostat ok I would deal with it when goes bad . Well it gave up and I needed to replace it . I spent 2 day screwing with it I didn't want to break the bolts so I used Kano Knoil , hammer , torch and impact gun . That is a big problem when you use steel bolts in a aluminum intake without anti-seize on them . I got them out but leaning over that grill and stretching out and played hell with my back for the last 2 days . This old age sucks . That 48 hrs of Knoil works . If you have aluminum head and the spark plug are turning hard , stop there and knoil them for 24 hrs so the thread stay in heads .

That stuff is the best for frozen nuts and bolts.
When I puled the rear end out of my Chevelle, I had soaked them for days with Liquid Wrench. Even with an impact gun, or a 2', 1/2" breaker bar, with a 3' cheater pipe slipped over it, they wouldn't budge.
Went and got some Kroil, and the next morning, I barely hit them with an impact, and busted them loose. Going back with new grade 8 bolts, with lots of antisieze.

The first time I saw it was on a calendar in a garage. Nice picture of a woman in shorts with a wrench in her hand and the line read "get you nuts off with Snap-On". I was about 12 or 13 at the time and still remember it.

I too feared this was going to be a joke about how it was once so cold that 2 frozen nuts were involved. Glad we dodged that bullet so to speak. )

Yep. I use to go to maintenance and tool and die shows in McCormick Place in Chicago. There, Snap-On had the real things and could get your picture taken with them. Sorry, no free samples, of either, but they did give you a free shopping bag and it usually had a calendar and a miniature wrench of some kind.

Yes, that was their gimmick. To put it in proper perspective, the girls used were not lewd what so ever. Some of the ladies could be overheard asking the Snap-On gals where their outfits came from as they wanted to buy them too.

Old age and the poor back..

[QUOTE= I got them out but leaning over that grill and stretching out and played hell with my back for the last 2 days . This old age sucks .[/QUOTE]

You are right about the back TGR. I've worn out 5 disks trying the be a superman by lifting heavy objects.
I go Wednesday for a Rizonomy for my back. Needles are injected beside the disks and hi frequency is applied. It deadens the nerves and stops the pain. I can't wait! I am having difficulty standing after sitting or lying down. (74 years old)
I told my wife I wanted to 4 wheel the mountains of West Virginia and I was going to buy a side by side.
The doctor told me to get a wheel chair if I did that, so I let that Idea slide
I can hardly carry my gun bag as it is now.
What sucks even worst is that my buddy has Melanoma and it is in his brain. Three brain operations and he has lost this reasoning. (77 years old.)
One ex shooting buddy had Diabetes so bad he is house bound due to water build up in his feet and he has to take Pee pills. (74 Years old).
You should think about over doing things. It will kick you when you least expect it.

For loosening stuck bolts/screws etc etc, Try a half and half solution of acetone and ATF.
It is far better than any commercial product on the market.
A search of the subject will turn up numerous tests run that compared it to all of the popular commercial products.

I saw a test on that and it outperformed any commercial product made.

Acetone and ATF will never work the same way as Kano Knoil . I've been in the auto repair business for over 50 yrs and Knoil is the best on frozen nuts and the stuff written on the can . Benchrest shooters using Knoil in gun to lift copper , lead and carbon fouling out of bores . Don't get the acetone near any painted stuff . I've use ATF in Black powder gun for short term storage to keep bore clean and lubed . Pour a Mix of ATF and water down a carb in a running engine above 2000 RPM will take carbon off valves and piston . I all so use kerosene on frozen nuts too . I've used acetone for a 1000 different things and it great stuff but you be careful with it and no snuffing it
