    Default Old Mechanic Trick To Removing Rusty Exhaust Manifold Bolts



    Bottom Line: Penetrant and let soak, six point socket/wrench, back and forth (loosen / tighten), maybe use some heat, keep bolts tight until all have been broken loose.

    I actually just used the loosen/tighten method to remove some of the bolts holding in my old shocks. Thanks, Jim!
