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

thanks

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.

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!!
