Air cans used for electronic cleaning works too, just takes a good bit.

That looks similar to "Rost Off" make by Wurth. Pretty good stuff, will have to try the loctite version

A couple years ago I read a comparison test of a few penetrating oils/fluids and the best by far was a home made brew of 50% transmission fluid and 50% acetone.

Ric, that Loctite Freeze & Release -- see link in VJ's post -- also asserts that it will also drop the temp way down, which sounds like it may be very useful in that sort of situation. The tranny/acetone mix won't do that, right?

I've been using PB Blaster for stuck bolts over the years, but that Loctite seems like an interesting product, which I learned about only yesterday (on the other forum).

Cheers,

Tried that loctite stuff years ago, didn't do a damn thing other than waste a couple bucks. The concept has some legitimacy to it but in practice it just didn't work for me. I stick with pb blaster or seadoo lube.

Me too, until I learned about the superior tranny fluid / acetone mix.
