Not being negative at all - I trust you guys and your experience a lot more than a reprint of a shop manual. Sometimes there are tips you guys have that beat the manual hands down - if I did everything by the manual I would still be trying to put my heater core inRAVEN wrote: ↑Mon Aug 19, 2019 9:31 pm Not trying to be negative, but I truly think a good look in the SHOP MANUAL, would help you out. Look in section 17-1 pg 17.7 it explains lifting, Frame Contact points and such. It will give you the most supportive points on the car.
Secondly using Acetone as a solvent to desolve ATF for a penetrating oil in my opinion is a waste of time, it flashes off so fast, it will never really allow the oil to penetrate. Use a proper penetrating oil, will work far better. IMHO.
I will give it a look for sure, I just wanted to pull on the community experience before doing so.
I thought the ATF mix was a waste of time too - however after using it on a Michigan car to do some front end work - wow, was pretty amazed. It came in second place on "project farm," on youtube, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUEob2oAKVs&t=328s - While the methods are not totally scientific the results are pretty neat. I think I will add a can of liquid wrench (first place) to the arsenal in case it does evaporate too quickly.
