    Car Guys - Penetrating oil


    Rust shouldn't be a problem on bikes, but on Vermont cars it is out of control. Found a great penetrating oil PBR Blaster. Spray the bolts down, grab a cup of coffee, spray them down again, grab another cup of coffee, and the bolts come right out. This stuff works much better than liquid wrench. I didn't have to get the torch out once to do the shocks in my winter beater. I hope this helps....

    Kroil is the way to go man.

    This is coming from someone who used to be the head salvage parts guy for the largest OEM and used parts supplier for Ford Model T's in the US. We would go through GALLONS of that stuff.

    Use it for seized bolts, rusty bolts, bolts that you can't even tell they are bolts anymore since they are so rusty, etc.

    It is available commercialy in gallon jugs and also as an aerosol under the name "Aero-Kriol".
