Thats the only thing I'm worried about, I don't know if PB blaster is flammable or not, and I don't think it would do anything to the rings or anything like that, but wd-40 or cheap oil based spray lube might be better than the specialty penetrating oils like PB and Liquid Wrench for that reason.wd-40
any excess that enters the piston will easy burn or be blown out in the first compressions.
Why not? I like using the torque wrench cause its about a foot longer than my 1/2" drive ratchet, and I don't have a breaker bar. I just crank it up to its highest setting and wrench away. Oops, guess I shouldn't have used it to break loose every single bolt on the entire suspension that the impact didn't take off... :stupid: I guess it hurts the innards of it or something?Never use a torque wrench for breaking things loose!!!...
Since we're necroposting, Philips Milk-of-Magnesia, unflavored was ok to use on the hot section for some jet engine bolts, fuel nozzle bolts, IIRC.And when you put the new ones in, put a little antiseize on the threads--you don't have to go nuts, just a little will help when you need to pull them again.
Actually, an old hot rodder told me he used to put cherry Maalox on them (cheaper and less messy than antiseize). Anyone else hear that one?
