rusted on exhaust bolt....
got three of them off, but the 4th one, top center one is being a bitch. spent a couple hours drilling and trying to cut it off but no luck. Anyone have a torch (which will heat it up enough to turn the head) i can borrow. I tried using the blue propane bottle from canadiantire and it did shit. (they didnt have the black bottle)

im in pickering

another word or two.... saws-all, or air chisel.

or a dremel tool-on sale a CTC for $10 with cutting wheels every so often, and it's a good tool to have!

Could you fit an angle grinder in there? If so, you could borrow mine. I'm at Whites and Kingston Rd.

grinder to cut nut or bolts.

couldn't get a grinder in there, the space was too tight between the body and exhaust. ending up drilling out some more of the nut and it fell apart, then took a couple swings and punched the bolt out.

thanks for the info and offer!!
