As a self-tinker you occasionally run into a wall. For example, it may happen that the cylinder head of the engine in your classic car cannot be removed. Despite the fact that you are sure that you have really loosened and removed all bolts and nuts. This is due to the close fit and rust or a reaction between iron and aluminum. For example, with Alfa Romeos. In particular, do not proceed by hitting a screwdriver or chisel with considerable force between the head and the block. No, spray the tap bolts every hour with creeping oil, the so-called WD40 ultimately giving the best result! And being patient is a good thing. You will (eventually) succeed!
