    Originally I planned to refurbish my drivers seat but spent the weekend fighting the door hinge screws. I am down to 4 of those suckers who are just unwilling to see it my way. I keep on soaking them and using my hand impact tool until the screw heads strip or break off. I should have posted in the "hardest bolt to remove" thead.

    Whenever a thermocouple is installed before turbo, make sure you never allow the temperature to exceed about 1,000* as this placement is not the reccomended spot, and will read 300* +- lower than if it were installed in the manifold. (Which it the ideal place.)

    And the Dark Man said to him, "I will set you high in my artillery. You are the man I want." Then he saw an army of ten thousand driving across the desert and into the mountains, a rough beast of an army whose time had come at last. And riding in a giant tanker, he saw himself, and knew that the truck was filled with Napalm. Behind him, in a long column, were trucks loaded with bombs, mines, plastic explosive, flame throwers, flares, heat seeking missiles, grenades, machine guns and rocket launchers. The dance of death was about to begin, and already the strings of the fiddles and guitars were smoking and the stench of brimstone and cordite filled the air.

    To the tinwoodsman. If those hinge bolts are still stuck in the hinges here is my methodology to remove them. This usually works unless the rust is real bad.
    After the bold head has broken off remove the nut on the other end and put a few washers on that end and replace the nut. Use lots of good grease on the washers and nut. Be sure at least one full thread protrudes out of the nut before you begin tightening the nut. Also, be very careful to stop when you get to the end of the threads or the bolt will break again. Keep adding more washers and drawing the bolt out till it falls out.
    There are bolts in other machines that get stuck just like these hinge bolts do. Most of the time this method will do it. Just be patient/persistent.
    I'm hoping it comes out clean for ya'.

    Not sure I agree with this. Where else but the manifold is before the turbo?
