May you bite the edge of your tongue in the same place. Over and over. Without ceasing. While interviewing for a new job.

May your nose run green into your mustache and beyond, with the untamed enthusiasm of the Falls at Iguasu, while you aim to impress the waitress of your dreams.

May you zip the skin on your private partner into your jeans the one time you attempt to be cool by going commando.

Use anti-seize on any parts involving the exhaust. Particularly the 02 sensor.

My loathing glows with the fiery passion of a thousand burning suns.

I have to agree but there are remedies.
Kroil oil: http://www.amazon.com/Kano-Kroil-Penetrating-liquid-KROIL/dp/B000F09CF4
Zep 45, a wonderful product that puts most light duty spray oils in the dumpster.
Acetone and ATF mixed, don't ask me..wtf, but most old machinists I know swear by it.
And some other products will make your day easier. The problem is most people would put too much neversieze on the O2 sensor going in and mess it up. A little dab will do ya. I am a fan though. (an old engineer on a boat I was once on always had silver fingers. He carried a can of neversieze in his back pocket of his overalls and a set of channel locks which I hated to see but standard fare on a steam boat. So his cigarettes were always silver tinged.) And take that can of WD40 and toss it in the trash unless its sole duty is tar removal or work bench cleaning. :p

Kroil is great stuff. I've had spokes "welded" to the spoke nipples and after hitting them with Kroil for a few days they come apart easily. For those that don't, applying a little bit of heat does the trick. I swear by Kroil.

Thanks, Beech and GP. A buddy dropped by with some stuff in a spray can. Don't remember the name. It's been soaking for a bit, so I'm about to give it another yank. I will order the products you recommended, though. They sound perfect.

Kroil...Great product..use it in my gun smithing endeavors. Its a creeper, best penetrating oil I have ever used. Kroil and fine steel wool will remove rust from gun barrels if not too badly pitted..and most the time without removing bluing.

Anti-seize another wonderful product..doesn't take much..I have the same can I'm still using out of for the last 20 years.

A buddy of mine came over with his solvent. Forgot what brand it was. It was supposed to work in 20 minutes. Didn't. I pushed with the wrench, I hit the wrench with a hammer. Nothing. So I tried it again in 40. No go. And again a few more times during the evening. It was kinda funny to watch myself slide across the garage floor from pushing against the wrench. :) There was no amount of hammering, pushing or pulling that would loosen that nut.

This morning I tried again, and after a couple dozen hits with the hammer, it finally let go. What a relief!

Going to the auto parts store this afternoon to buy some solvent. Kee-raist! Thanks for the tips on which ones to buy.

Success is glorius. Next thing would have been a propane or MAPP gas torch, have to work fast heat and wrench as fast as you can so the inside part doesn't heat up too much. :dance:

Yeah. I wanted to stay away from that solution. I've seldom had much luck with it.
