    Use a 1/2" drive impact universal & six point sockets here with a 1/2" breaker bar and she'll break free.

    The day before you pull this engine, spray down the exhaust fasteners with penetrating oil.

    Aerokroil is a must!! It is the only penetrating oil I've found that actually works.

    For anyone who hasn't used it, you can buy it from Amazon or Eastwood. It's expensive, but one can will last a long time.

    as said before. be very careful with the header to midpipe bolts. i recently yanked a 4.6 out of a crown vic; 2 of the 4 bolts snapped. use penatrating oil or if you can heat before you crank on them to hard

    Please forgive me if this a stupid question, do you think everything will come easier since the motor and trans were out about a year and half ago, got converter and cams installed, heads were done as well. Then the motor spun rod bearings.

    Within a year, you shouldn't have any problems with frozen fasteners.

    Using anti seize on fasteners will help prevent disassembly issues in the future especially with bolts threaded into aluminum.
    I always have a can on my workbench.



    The question here is why did your engine spin rod bearings?

    Ever since I bought the car with 10k miles I have been racing it, I go out to track as much as I can, probably 15-20 times a year, I bracket race at 66 and 41, I’ve even gone to Byron and Indy a few times, I drove it everywhere, no trailer. I don’t know if it’s from that, I kept up with oil changes on it, my friend I race with thinks it was in the tune but I’m not knowledgeable enough to say that.
