Jay,
Lots of good advice here. Take a day or two away from the boat.
It sounds like you need to take your wife out for a nice dinner. It's great when they support your hobbies. When you and her hit the water with those new motors purring it will make all the hard work worth while.

Good luck,
Dan

Some thoughts.........
Your new wife is going to take out a loan to help you out with the engines??!! WHAT A SWEETHEART!!! Id say marry her but you already did, Now go bang her livin' brains out then come back and work on the boat.......
Releasall workks very well, thats all they use at the gas company when they are changing gas meters that have been sitting ouside for 15 yrs.
Call around to some machine shops, some of them have guys that their full time job is nothing but fastener removal, I met a guy one time, that was his business, goes to factorys, printing presses etc
Go bang your wifes brains out......have a cigarette......go back at it..........Doug

Okay
Last night I looked like a monkey ****ing a foot ball trying to work those bolts again to no luck
Me and 2 of my friends thought about it and decided to take a few steps back and have some beers

After they left, I thought about it and thought about it
This thing IS NOT GOING TO BEAT ME
I have pulled **** out of thin air before and Ill do it again

Ike, Im calling you today so be prepared

I have figured out now what to do
I have a wizzer wheel, Im going to take the protective shield off, lay down and wizz the tops of the bolts off
Going to then fork lift this engine out of there (first one is already out)
Then im going to torch the ***** and split the nut with an air chizel and get that off of there and then punch the bolt (or what is left of it) down after I remove the asswipe wishbone silent choice pipe (which by the way is for sale CHEAP)

I just cant believe that little nut (aluminum and as light as a paper clip) is holding on so tight
I have one bolt that does move about 1/8 th of an inch back and forth so I know that one is not seized in the bell housing spot
If that other bolt is not turning at all, Ill torch her little ass and pry up the back of the engine or something (use the fork lift luke!)

Ill get this whore out of there
Ike, what time you able to talk?
Jason

Good luck Jay. I have yet to pull my motors but I can only imagine I'll have the same sort of **** to deal with. Keep us posted on your progress. By the way, if rust is holding bolts in, I'm a big fan of Coke. Pour a can of coke on them if the coke will sit around them and get down in the threads you are styling. I used to use it all the time to get rusted cap screws out of a mold or die.
