    PB Blaster Penetrating oil



    Many have seen or used it, many have not. If your one who hasent I highly recomend picking up a can of this stuff.

    this has saved me a lit of tiems from broken bolts and busted hands. you can tell instantly after spraying that this stuff means business just from the smell(smells to me somthing like diesel fuel and wd-40 mixed together)

    If you are planning on working on anything with rusted bolts or anything that has seen heat(turbos, exhaust, engine parts, steering components) Spray this on and let it sit for 30 min to an hour and come back. makes bolts come off like butter. Better yet on really stubborn nuts and bolts spray and let it sit over night. If this wont loosen them up then nothing will!

    Overall compared to other penatrating oils this dominates all. I still use WD-40 for general oiling, but when it comes down to the dirt jobs you cant beat this stuff!!!!!!!


    Can be had at local autoparts store for $3-5



    This product is one of the best for loosening nuts and bolts I have ever used. I am working on a 1946 CJ2A Jeep some of the nuts and bolts have been on for more than fifty years. "B'laster" sure does the job! - Ralph / South Glenn Falls, NY

    I am in the process of restoring a 1927 REO. I have removed parts that are press fitted together and badly rusted. In the past I have tried various penetrating fluids, "Liquid Wrench" and I still had to sperate the parts with a hydraulic press. With PB Blaster I spray it on wait a couple of minutes, tap the part once with a hammer and I am able to separate the parts with my fingers! Thanks for making my restoration easier. Keep up the good work! - Paul / West Harford, CT




    Great to add to your toolbox for those junkyard runs where you dont have airtools also!

    PB Blaster is all we use in the shop when wrenching on the Rally cars. This stuff is the shiznit!!

    Make sure you use it in a close quarter, poorly ventilated environment

    YEs, PB is very good stuff. I usually have multiple cans sitting around. I like the little mini cans, they're just so cute.

    We go through the stuff like you wouldn't believe.

    My usual routine is to spray everything I'll need to loosen before starting work, so it has time to soak in and work its magic. If you get a really stubborn fastener a little heat can help it to penetrate even better.

    Good companions for the PB are Scott Shop Towels (the blue ones), and Carb & Choke cleaner, I always have a few around.

    works perfectly for.... anything.
    I put it on toast.

    seriously though, if i'm under any car and i look at a bolt and say "yeesh... that's gonna suck to remove..."

    i douse it thoroughly...

    i suggest doing that to the entire rear suspension on your legacies.
    i've done it 3 or 4 times now.
    spray it enough... more than enough.
    spray it when someone is next to you. when they say "holy crap.. are you going to stop spraying that?" move on to the next bolt.

    I would recommend an additional 5-10 seconds spray time after the comment has been made... but I spose each person does things differently

    i agree i spray it on my cheerios in the morning, and i eat whatever didn't blow all over the table.

    but it is good stuff, i also recommend pb blaster car polish too. it's weird stuff, but it works good. they said it works better when you freeze it and use it shortly after it thaws.

    I have actually never been impressed with PB Blaster. About the same as Liquid Wench and other products.
    Worth makes a rust remover that works better than anything I have ever used! I think it is called Roost Off or something like that, being a "German" product. They have a + version that has a lubricant in it as well and is what I have used. I started using it after getting some in a car parts place that specializes in Mercedes parts.

    If You think PB is the shiznit, Try Kroil (www.kanolabs.com)

    Is hands down the best penetrating oil on the market, bar none.

    My Uncle turned Me on to it. He had a Ford flathead on the engine stand that had sat out in a field for 25 years with the intake uncovered. He told Me that He had been soaking it with Kroil for a couple of days. Then He took a 1/2" drive socket to the crank bolt. A good bump on the breaker bar, and the thing turned over.

    Totally Amazing stuff.

    Re: PB Blaster Penetrating oil

    Gotta give another vote for Kroil, We use this stuff at work, actually the silikroil, wich adds a silicon lubricant, and it is flat out amazing. I've honestly never used pb, but kroil is definitely a great option.

    Re: PB Blaster Penetrating oil

    I use a mixture of used auto transmission fluid and acetone 50/50 in a spray bottle
    shake it first then spray it on
    wait a minute or heat with a propane torch first
