WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO SEPERATE THE BOTTOM END FROM THE TOP END OF THE ENGINE. I HAVE A 75 COMMANDO ENGINE THAT IS RUSTED TOGETHER. I DON'T WANT TO BREAK THE FINS. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
79x100 said:Diesel is one of the best penetrants, if the engine was mine I would put it in a drum of diesel for a month or so (this is not an exageration).
I have never damaged a fin but the amount of Norton heads and barrels around with sometimes quite serious damage suggests it's not that hard to do. I wouldn't hit it with anything harder than an old soft hide mallet.
