Been useing PB blaster for years. Some love it some hate it. It's been around decades. I like it cause it penetrates as good as any I have used and stays oily for a long time unlike things like WD40

I normally use PB Blaster as well. Occasionally Liquid Wrench if it's on sale for a much better price. WD-40 doesn't seem to ever work too well for me.

Edit. I forgot about Brute Blast. That stuff worked awesome too. We ordered a bunch of it when I worked at the garage, but I haven't used it or seen it since then. It may not be manufactured anymore.

1975 C30 Dually, 350.
$1500, and the guy threw in 2 nice tires and rims that go with it, a new muffler, a blanket for the seat, a bunch of tools that are in the tool boxes on the side, and gave me a couple gallons of gas becuse it was low.
Plan on making a tow truck out of it. Got my hands on an old style wrecker bed. Should be a fun project. Got some plans, haha.

Got an awesome Tow truck bumper today for the new project.
Heavy som-biotch tho, I can't pick it up, and in no wimp, I can pick up a 350 long block (barely).

Also go some other things. Got a 73 chevy core support grill bracket, headlight brackets and center hood latch, spe ofic to the 73-74 models, so can put on my 74 egg crate grill on.
Also got headlights, lower valance, orange 74 marker lights, fender/side marker lights, and a power steering pump.

My 81 GMC currently has 207000km or approximately 160000 mile and I would rough estimate 300 passes down the drag strip. It went down the track 50 times this last summer alone. In 1988 it was a track champion in the street class. And the transmission has never been out of the truck, oh it did get a shift kit early in its life but that was just pull the pan. That said I have been wondering when it will start giving problems so I bought a core transmission and rebuilt it and will install it in the spring/summer. Original is a lockup and this new one is standard converter and I am going to install a higher stall converter. Built with red plates and machined to accept 5 friction plates per clutch other than the front clutch. HP sprag race and new sprags. Rebuild kit from Cyclone is real nice to use and installed a Transco 1-2 shift kit.

@AyWoSch Motors just as a warning, you will pay for all that heavy lifting later in life. Just ask me how I know.........I got x-rays and CT scan pics!!!!!
Here I was reading that post and thinking the exact same thing, then "glow and behold" this post pops up. @AyWoSch Motors please listen to those that have been there and done that, and lived to regret it.

Thanks for the advise, I believe it. My back is already a bit messed up from the stupid crap I have tp do at work. I only do that if I absolutely have to.
I had a buddy help me with the bumper, I was not messing around with that thing, to damn heavy. I'll probably use the tractor to put it on.

And lifting the 350, I think only did that twice. I dont get any help with my projects, have to do it all by myself. Took it from the ground where it was plopped, up onto a pallet, so itd stay safe, then again from the pallet to the bed on a truck to bring it away. Didn't have a tractor or a hoist at the time. I do now.

Ouch.

I picked up a bare Olds 455 block once but it was to move it in and out of a parts washer. Not off the deck. That was enough for me. I've developed a lot of techniques for lifting heavy objects now. None of them involve my back.
