    Aluminum head, or steel?

    If Aluminum... ouch!

    Assuming steel, heat it well and quench repeatedly with your favorite penetrating oil (repeatedly as in at least a half-dozen times), get your best set of Vice Grips (or even buy a new pair), and after the heat cycles, let it cool for ~12 hours and soak in penetrating oil. Then heat it again, and get the Vice Grips on to the end of the stud and tighten them down as much as you can, and try and turn them out.

    Assuming that doesn't work ('cause we all know the easy route NEVER works like you see on YouTube!), get in there with a die grinder and bristle wheel and clean the **** out of them, 'til you're down to good steel and then weld a decent size nut (5/8) on them and try and turn them out.

    Again, assume that won't work, and find the gasket kit you bought, cut that abortion of a 'B' pipe off, pull the heads, get them on the bench and drill them out. If you have to resort to this, it's critical to do it properly. Cut the stud off as close to the block as you can, but leave a little bit standing proud (1/8 - 1/4") and grind the top flat, layout the center perfectly, and use an optical center punch to mark the center, and start drilling out. Use a small center drill to start, and then move up by 1/32" or so, and once you get to just about the maximum you can drill, ideally switch to a left-hand drill bit. Shouldn't be more than a weekend and two case job!

    I'll give it a try, thanks all.

    For a penetrate I'm using a mixture of liquid wrench, pb blaster, mouse milk, and transmission fluid (everything I had)

    I think 75-80 mph @ 6k for the taco. I'll have to check again... damn long gear ratios...

    Edit: 97 mph @ 5700 rpm :rofl::rofl:

    One of our customers brought this wheel in. Apparently it had some rash on it and he welded it and wants the lathe man to reclaim it.

    Turns out it is Falcon 9 rocket launched from Florida this morning. I thought it was odd is why I pulled over and got a picture.

    It was neat, just looking at it it looked like it was still. When I zoomed in with my phone you could see it moving. Had I known what it was I would have tried to video it. I pulled into a side street and there was a car coming so I had to rush.
