    My dad and I are taking out the engine on our '66 MGB to replace the clutch, but are running into problems with bolts that are more or less baked on. What's the best penetrating oil to loosen those things up? I've heard PB Blaster is the best, any experience?

    You've heard correctly Trappy. Kroil is good, PB is better as a quick penetrant. Good luck with the project, bob

    "PB Blaster" is by far the best that I have ever used.

    PB blaster- is the best--don't rush it let the parts soak over night- used tons of it when I was in business., also when we lived on a boat for 6 years (salt water environment is tough on mechanical & refrigeration equipment.

    I have a pint of the best penetrating oil in the world, but you cannot buy it or sell it and if you were caught buying or selling it you would have major problems with the law. It's called sperm oil

    Tron,

    "Hey, can you whip me up a batch?"

    A friend was dealing with stuck chokes in a gun just purchased. Soaked the end of the barrel in diesel oil for about a week. This worked where the Kroil I gave him did not work.

    Tron, I told you it's illegal to deal in it. You either have to whip your own batch or try your local sperm bank.

    Joe, You've got to drink a quart of Marvel Mystery oil first in order to whip up an ounce of sperm oil!

    *blinks*, ok I was not expecting responses like this, learn something new every day I guess?
    Despite being weird out a little bit, I picked some up and just put it on, well see how it works.
    Thanks!

    Trappy there is a technique to getting a rusted bolt out or undone if you can get to it with a small torch and not burn up everything around it. If you can get to it a bottle torch works just as well as an acetylene torch will work. What you do is to heat up the bolt(on the nut and threaded end) as hot as you dare before distortion of the bolt and stick a birthday candle (wax) on that portion. What happens is when the bolt is heated and the wax applied the wax will distribute itself much like solder on a copper pipe. When the wax is applied use your wrenches and bump it a couple times. I've never known this technique to not work. Good luck and learn all you can on what you are doing with your dad on the restore of that car you will have those skills and that knowledge to use the rest of your life. Dan

    One more vote for Kroil. Stuff is unreal. It gets under the copper fouling in a rifle barrel so you can just scrub it ou.

    It gets under rust so you can get it off too.

    but I'm going to go find some PB.
