    Whats the best penetrating oil

    Need to free stuck shafts on a carb tried boiling in hot water to expand ali / WD 40 / soaking in diesel for over a week - still stuck
    Other option is to remove butterflies and try knock the shafts out or drill small holes in the body (where shafts go through ) so i can get penetrating oil to the shafts then seal afterwards

    If you have done all that with no results i would be inclined to remove butterflys and remove shaft, penetrating oil isn't a magic cure, we bought some megger expensive stuff at work which quite frankly is ****e, think we were suckered into that, my fav is WD in a aerosol.
    If quitters never win, and winners never cheat, then who is the fool who said "Quit while you're ahead"

    Whilst WD40 is undoubtedly great stuff - what wrong with Plus Gas (except for the smell)
