Hi.......

Anyone have an hints on removing the A.I.R. smog tubes from the exaust manifold? One of mine is cracked & needs to be replaced. I'm guessing they are going to be somewhat difficult to remove due to corrosion?

Thanks!

KW Knockers loose. I used the stuff on an early Nova manifold that has much larger tubing nuts. It took a while and I had to heat the manifold with a torch but it worked.

Question

Do you think a good shot of PBBlaster might help loosen it?

It's quite the stuff, imho!!

I would have to agree on the PB Blaster. I have had excellent results using it.
