OK, now that Fred is home, time to begin the process of freeing up the frozen fasteners and components. I will be using Kroil ( Other suggestions have been a mixture of 50% acetone and 50% ATF. For now it will be Kroil. Not much happens during this phase, just continually soaking and a little tap with a wrench every now and then. This is an extremely phase as damage can occur if you get too impatient and try to force fasteners loose. With a bike this old the last thing I want to happen is break or damage a components that results in it not being usable. Not an exciting phase, but very important! Next post will be looking at the carburetor while the bike is “soaking”.
