    Right side engine mount bolt wonít budge.

    Iím finally getting around to installing my frame sliders but cannot break the right engine bolt free. Itís TIGHT!!! I see thereís a nut on the back side but itís pretty tight in there.
    Left side came out without much fuss.
    Any thought? Is there something Iím missing?
    Itís currently getting a healthy dose of WD40.

    Iíd apply some heat... the engine mount bolts are usually quite corroded

    Torque should not be too high? 40ft/lbs?

    Highly opinionated and somewhat twisted, or so I've been told.

    I did just that and got it off. It had some corrosion as you mention. That initial ďshockĒ when it finally lets go with a ďcrackĒ is heart stopping. I thought Iíd broken it. Lol.
    Sliders are on. Thanks.

    Glad you got it popped loose without issue.

    Good to keep some of this stuff on the shelf for just that purpose.

    WD 40 is not a penetrating oil, it is barely a lubricant.

    Get penetrating oil in it and let it sit overnight
