I have never taken to PB Blaster.
I love kroil but I am too cheap to pay for it.
WD40 is wonderful to brighten old paint and brings out old lettering as Harry noted. I use alot of it.
The 50/50 ATF-acetone mix works well to loosen as well.

I'll echo whats been said about Zep 45. I used to use it way back. So far back I forgot all about it. I used to buy a few cans from work. Its real good stuff and a close second to Kroil but Kroil deff is the best I've ever used. Like I mentioned before yes it is expensive but a little really does a lot. You dont have to drown the part like with other sprays so a can usually lasts me 6 months to a year, thats economical for me considering how much grief and wasted time and broken bolts it saves. WD-40 is perfect for that squeaky screen door thats it lol

PB Blaster is pretty well my go-to for penetrating oil. However, if something's REALLY stuck the only thing that's gonna get it loose is the old heat and beat method-have yet to find a penetrating oil that ALWAYS will get stuff loose-not even Kroil!

"Same idea with Permatex RTV Silicone. They deliberately make a weak spot in the cap so it will break and ruin the remaining contents of the tube."

Vanman:

I've got the same gripe. Also, the caps break on the small tubes of JB Weld.

I guess we should think ahead and just apply a band or sleeve on it ahead of time. It happens every time.
