Re: Glow plug removal a BIG PROBLEM

For what its worth, Spanjaard make a special penetrating oil that is superb. I had an issue on a steering column and nothing could unlock it. But the Spanjaard stuff did after spraying and soaking for a few days. You might even try submerging the whole head in paraffin and just leaving it there for ...
