Looks like it's just welded there. Incoming line, not the bango bolt. I've been soaking it in WD40 for a year probably - no luck. Used brake line wrench and locking pliers - no difference. Don't want to use heat there, it's too dangerous. Any idea, please?

And it's my 92' civic Si Crying or Very sad

PB Blast is a better penetrating lube than WD-40

there are others as well

If you feel lucky use a heat gun

don't bother twisting it till it deforms, get another wrench and hit the first wrench with the second. It will send shockwaves that will at least help the PB get in the cracks but also have a better chance of cracking the threads loose.

I'm thinking about using an orbital saw to cut the damn thing... Evil or Very Mad

patience pulled apart my rusted-to-hell rear suspension, so I'm sure it would work on your line as well, but if you're replacing parts anyways, who cares about the original parts?

Funny thing, I used the saw on the rear suspension, too. I actually bought it for that job Smile

So I used the saw on fuel filter, too. No soaking helped, and I decided I had enough. Filter cut in halves and succesfully replaced Very Happy
