    Hi, I have a 1973 Eldorado. Trying to get the exhaust pipe nut out of the cylinder I rounded it off a lot. Can still get a pipe wrench on it but I’m afraid of rounding it off so much I won’t get the nut out at all. Any ideas, maybe heating the nut real hot. I’m not sure what to do as not to do any damage to the jug. Thanks

      Jim, That’s a tough position to be in. I’ve seen it a lot though. Penetrating like Liquid wrench or PB Blaster works great. I would soak it for several days, re-applying the oil regularly. Heat the head around the nut with a propane or MAP torch. The problem is, if it’s that seized, the damage to the head may already been done. Is it one or both sides?
