Transmission cooling line fitting seized.
I am removing radiator for rodding or replacemt.
The tubing from the transmission is attached to the radiator by a
brass fitting which is seized.
The fitting turns ok, but since the tubing is seized to the
fitting, the tubing twists.
So far I have tried the following steps fo two days.
Heating with propane torch.
Penetrating oil while still very hot.
Three vise-grips clamped on tubing to prevent it from turning.
I don't want to replace the tubing the whole way back to te
I may need to cut tubing and connect cut end to a new fitting with
short length of new tubing sticking out of it.
Any other suggestions ?
