over the years I've been squirting the bolts that bolt the frame rails to the bolster on my M with loose juice of varying descriptions every time I walk by but I don't think any of it has soaked in. I tried (half heartedly to put a bar on them a couple times to no avail, I think I even gave them a couple quick shots with the impact. One of them has always been backed out part way, or maybe it's just too long, either way it's got brush paint all over the threads and it's not budging easily, before I paint it this fall I would like to get them out and the thread in the cast cleaned up. I have thought of heating them with acetylene a few cycles in hopes that the expansion and contraction would create a little room but I am afraid if I draw the temper put of the bolts they will just twist off. Are there any suggestions for getting them backed out without breaking??
