    usual ways apply

    heat gun

    PB blaster

    a proper fitting quality 6 point socket

    repeat.

    try going in both directions. one you can get some give, bury in solvent and heat it and a couple of smacks with a drift wouldn't hurt

    SHORT cheater bar can sometimes help, but breaking them off as you know is to be avoided at all costs.(except time-soak it for long enough and they will come out)

    a pinpoint propane torch in a skilled hand can expedite, but carries risks. Go with the heat gun first

    Thanks, have been soaking them with PB blaster for 2 days... will keep it up.. mini torch ordered!

    On a side note, is there any market for this model? It appears that the pump is locked up as the starter clicks and sounds like the motor turns slightly over.. at the very least do people want the trailers? I'm going to give it minimal effort to get it running

    the yamaha SUV has its fans

    i'm one of them.

    shame you're so far away

    needless to say you have to be fairly careful with the torch. Getting one of those inexpensive laser temp guns ( like$20) will help you keep temps sane

    a short depth socket can be helpful in shocking the bolts. you can stick a couple of nuts in a deepwell and use that.

    keep in mind when working that a bolt can suddenly let go due to corrosion, always pull a wrench don't push it.

    the trailers are suitable for small boats actually
