PB Blaster

This stuff:



I used it for the first time last weekend to free a brake drum from it's hub on a 2000 Camry where the drum had never been removed. I tried it on a previous occasion where I just used the bolts to force the drum out and ended up ruining the thread holes. When I used the PB Blaster and let it soak in (really only for a few minutes) removing the brake drum was actually pretty easy.

I can't believe that I didn't buy this product a long time ago! It's really that good.

my turn to sound dumb... would this work to remove the stock header bolts when I switch to my S&S headers or will it not allow the bolts to seat correctly when installed?

Yes!!!! it will help very much so. I used this stuff on some headers on an old Integra I used to own. Also worked for stubborn brake calipers. Think of PB B'laster like WD40 on steroids.

Since I'm new to this stuff, I know they say sometimes it helps to put the stuff on the day before, but if I can only work on the car on one day a week, is a week in advance too far in advance?

Sometimes it does take multiple sprays to get the job done. a week advance will help, but it would also help to spray it again the night before you do something. It only takes like 2-3 seconds to spray something. Just keep a can of it in a ziplock bag in your car, and make sure it doesn't get on cloth or anything. It leaves some nice orangey stains.

I am looking to replace the original flexible brake lines on my 1995 Ford Escort. I would probably have to remove the wheel to get to the spot where the flex line joins the metal line. It won't be fun to do all of that, and it won't take 2-3 seconds to do that.

I believe that if you crank the wheel all the way in one direction you should be able to get in there enough to spray the line.

Just overspray, it won't hurt anything. just don't get it on a disc or pad and your golden. It would also help if you used a straw for more accuracy.

For those who have never used this product before, it is not like an acid, where everything it touches falls apart. It pretty much acts as a STRONGER WD40

yeah, basically all it does is break up stuck/rusted bolts so you dont break em when trying to get them out.

very handy stuff.

Ummmm... cars with rear drum brakes do have flexible hoses at the end. At least all the ones I've ever seen do.
