Well, I'm still trying to take of my stuck stem from my new acquisition that I'm trying to restore. Tried the following so far:
1) LPS penetrant oil. = fail
2) Liquid Wrench = fail, so far
3) PB Blaster = fail, so far
4) Freeze off = fail, so far
5) A lot of whacking on the stem with a dead blow hammer = fail, so far
So, I'm down to one of the last magic potions mentioned out there, Ammonia with maybe some ATF mixed in with it. Problem is, no one seems to sell the full strength stuff, only the Janitor grade 10% cleaning solution Tried all the big and small hardware stores = fail
Tried the drug stores = fail
I need help to find ammonia or the hacksaw might be used on the lovely pantograph stem on the bike which I would not want to do. Any suggestions on where I should check next??
In the meantime I will persevere and keep blasting it with penetrants and the Freeze-off and whack at it once in a while....
