    I use Kryoil all the time. In fact, for the last week I have been soaking the fittings for the brake hoses on my 68 truck so I have some hope of getting them to break free. I have heard that Acetone and Transmission fluid works great too.

    I have a '69 Chevy stepside and though I don't need to do that on it I'm about to on my '68 Chevy II Nova SS. The Silikroil is coming soon and I'll try it instead of PB Blaster though I don't know if I even need it yet.

    The OP said he had a broken bolt so I was responding to that. Just my opinion of course based on my experience with broken bolts.

    Thanks. Sometimes hard to tell who is talking to and with who.
    Sometimes people are writing at the exact same time which can get crazy. ;)

    Thank you all! :)
    Does anyone else have an opinion on cutting/grinding the bolt head off to remove the balancer leaving more bolt exposed than if it breaks off who knows where? The Silikroil is here but useless till I can get it to the bolt. I will try the 'shocking' idea first but that will mean removing the radiator which I will just have to do pretty much anyway.
