Seized Screw, Help Removing!!!
I'm trying to remove the phillip screw on the flame arrestor adapters with no luck. I'm using the penetrating oil you see in the picture, but still no luck.
Any recommendations to get this screw loose?
I want to replace the 6 bolts that hold the carburators to the case and the red flame arrestor adapters are in the way.

It looks like there's enough meat there to get it. The right size is key. Looks like that might even be a P#3. I always have good luck using the right size head, then holding the screwdriver with one hand like you were going to stab something, with the center of my palm of my other hand pushing down like a mofo at the same time. Hope that makes sense.

Ever hear of a hammer-driver?
Basically, it's a screwdriver with a big hammer anvil on the end. When you hit it, with a large hammer, it forces it down, and twist the screw at the same time, usually breaking it loose.
Grind away the flame arrestor adaptor, in a "D" shape, where the screws go through, and never have to pull off the the adaptor again.

Thanks guy. I had tried all of those but none worked. All the screws were at the point that they were going to strip bad.
Just got them off so the I stuff I sprayed on them worked after letting them sit for several hours. I have to replace them because I damaged the phillip fitting on them.
When I put them back on I"m going to put a little anti-seize on them to make sure I don't have the same problem again.

Rafi, this is normaly what happens when stainless is screwed into aluminum. You have to options, the antiseize or you can use some silicone gasket maker. This also will keep any moisture out of the threads and it does act like a light loctite on bolts.
