Penetrating Lubricant & Adhesive Testing

Post by 23yrRebuild »

I came across this YouTube video that tests various penetrating lubricants....I found it interesting, but YMMV....long story short :
Liquid Wrench performed this particular testing method the best, followed by the 50:50 Acetone/ATF mixture, which by the way, has been recommended numerous times on the forum.

P.S. - this same guy also performed tests on adhesive brands such as JB Weld, Loctite, Gorilla, Flex, etc.
No surprise that JB Weld had stellar performance on various materials:
