Floorboards gotta come off!!

Post by Engel6264 »





These have got to come off!! The allen head is tighter than ,, .... you finish that line..
I think that I stripped the left side head. Have used penetrating spray have tried a visegrip. Just have given up.

Give me a idea that I can use.

Thanks

Heat, shock. If they are cheap fasteners, good luck. You might have to just drill them out.

Heat is what I will have to use. I am the third person owning this bike and don't know what was put on the threads.

They are finally off. We did have to use heat. And it was the red lock right that was on them. Wow! Was that fun... NOT...!
