    Any one got any ideas on how to unscrew a jammed bridge section of a wildcat predator mod ? Currently got it soaking in diesel. Really frustrated.

    Try boiling water or put it in the freezer and when its cold enough then use boiling water.

    Or maybe in this order would be better, put it in boiling water until it heats then remove to the freezer for 5/10 mins they try it. I think that's what has worked for me with various items threadlocked that I would have risked damage with direct heat ie blowtorch worth a try bud.

    Try this - Loctite Freeze and Release Penetrating Oil. About 8.00 a can used it on weathered nuts and bolts with great results.

    Add some ATF (automatic transmission fluid) to the diesel and you'll have the best penetrating oil going.

    good evening Richard, one of the best "release agents " we have found ,and we use in the workshop is a 50/50 mix of acetone and automatic transmission fluid. It seems to work very well and gets into even badly rusted / seized parts. A word of warning though ,the flash point for this liquid is VERY low, so do not smoke or have a naked flame any where near it. Normally soaking for 48-72 hours sees the job done in most cases. Any way good luck . Yours respectfully Mike Norris Brock and Norris Custom Rifles

    Add the same again in equal amounts (50/50) mix of kerosene & varsol (mineral spirit) to the acetone & transmission fluid....and you've got a very effective bore cleaner known as "Ed's Red"
