Default Re: Best penetrating oil?

Silver Bear,
You reminded me of something I'd learned...well let's just say, a long time ago. When I was in my late teens I worked for a Chevy dealership in Miami Florida. Lots of salt air to really play havoc with threaded parts. The front end guy there showed me a mix he used; ATF and mineral spirits. It would free up the rustiest bolts and nuts in minutes. On real bad ones he'd apply just a little heat and tap with a small hammer. Always seemed to work. I'd forgotten all about that until your post. Thanks.
