Ok im trying to get the motor mounts lose on my s14 and these bitches will not fucking budge!!!!!!

Here is what I have tried to far.

The two wrench move. Where you put a box end wrench on the nut and attach another box end wrench to that one for more leverage. I've tried that and no luck....yanked on it as hard as i fucking good for a good 5 minutes or more.

Then got fed up and got my torch and torched the nut for a good 30 seconds to a minute. Tried the wrench trick again.....NOTHING!

Now here is where I have no damn clue what to do next.

After trying the wrench trick over and over and getting heavier stuff to replace. (used a big ass monkey wrench....still nothing)

I have an electric impact gun. 3 and a half inch drive and got that on the nut and let it fuckin have it but still the nut DID NOT FUCKING DO ANYTHING!!!

This is really really pissing me off seeing as how its the last two nuts before i can actually get the motor out and its holding me back. I dont know what to try next.

Can somebody please give me some advice or something cuz i have lost all patients with this bullshit.

try some penetrating lube it will penetrate between the bolt and nut and let it come louse. There is probably a little rust between the bolt and nut that has glued it together.

Get a die grinder and grind the stud... or the nut. Whichever you want. Get a new motor mount and BAM nukkah.

Get a huge breaker bar, and get a huge f*ing pipe (good three feet long), and use those two to loosen the damn thing. Thats what I used to loosen a wheel locking nut, my guess the locking nut was over torqued to at least 260lbs.

i had the same problem. tried everything, pb blaster, wd-40, breaker bars, until the nut became so stripped.

i decided to go to OSH to pick up Craftsman Bolt-Out for $19.99

using those to form a solid grip and my 3ft+ long cheater bar worked like a charm.

I just got done with seized mounts...

I tried an air chisel, sawzall, impact gun, dremel, grinder, breaker bars/snipes, all sorts of shit.

None of that works when the rust is stronger than the nut.

Spray a ton of liquid wrench on it and let it sit for a bit.

Then get your torch.

30 seconds - a minute is fuck all.

I had mine glowing like an amber. It was smoking from the top too. Thats how hot you need to get it.

After that the come off easy with plain old 14mm. Use a ratchet with extension on the drivers side because of the steering shit in the way.

LOL yea dude I was.

I guess I will have to hit up the auto store tomorrow for the liquid shit. Im just gonna go keep at it with the impact gun until it gets dark.

I realize the nut is already off but I just wanted to second what was stated above.

I had a siezed nut on my 12 year old stock exhaust that absolutely would not come off. We tried pb blaster, breaker bars, impacts, etc nothing would budge it. Luckily for me I had an old timer around who broke out the oxyacetyline (sp?) torch and showed us that if you heated up the bolt till it was a glowing ember it would come off and sure enough it unscrewed just like butter. Keep in mind once you do this both the nut & bolt are no longer safe to use but it worked at least.
