Scumbag offset: long neglected hitch.
Please consider purchasing my fine, horsepower-boosting decals.

That's the smell of the shattered hopes and dreams of wd-40 froze stiff, normally you'd stand around with your buddies and clock for a little bit and then escalate it to tentatively tap tap tap ring on it. The problem is, steel oxide has a higher packing factor than the basic steel, so what you get is as it oxidizes it expands and because it's constrained within this socket this is a trailer hitch. It essentially welds itself on there like they weld. That's.

How train wheels get put on their interference, press fit and those don't ever fly off? You see here we have a interference press fit due to oxide and without getting now terry, the torch we'll just step right into it and get into the hydraulics. Do some of my best work single-handed in the dark a little force on her? We pushed on that side a little bit we'll swap her around pushing on this side. That's amazing! Probably a couple ton there, just gon na move back a little bit, wow we're slowly escalating at the heat and beat stage. It's always the last thing you try what works funny? How about that a little heat shield little visit from our old friend, terry, the torch! Come on you piece of nearly 10 tons, retools i'm in there with a different ram, just a little bit tighter yeah.

That thing is in there good look at that bolt bend through the scrap bucket to see what the empire dirt doth provided. Let that clamp down yeah kinda ineffectually swiping at it with my purse here, i'm gon na - have to put you down in order to give her a proper twack. Let me put you on the tailgate there yeah that ain't gon na work just close your eyes. This won't take about a minute yeah two strokes, two strokes and we'll know, oh, that ain't going doors rumor has it.

This is how the duke law got. His nickname saw this in a training. Video might have been a what not to do safety training, video yeah. They likely make these receiver hitches in factories every day and if and you were to poke your head underneath, i bet you there'd be two or four fair to middle and size bolts on there, but just on thread we'll never know we were missing something there code.

Angry saying, hey, copco, strap, engage your safety squints, we'll be pulling to the one side harder because it's a bigger ramp. Let's go have a look at that. Oh yeah, bending those bolts come on, give it a little wrap. Maybe solid, come on schwartz.

Do it! For me and summer teeth in three two one: oh we broke something i think went supersonic into a low earth orbit i'll push the other side here glad i had that comco strap on there. It's the only good thing to make. Ah, that's it. You heard of the handyman secret weapon, duct tape, a light side, a dark side and it binds the universe together.

Here we got a farmer's secret weapon, shitty welding, you ever see them movies where they got something jammed in the receiver, so they back up a big black pickup truck, try and yard it out. Jesus things end up taking out a back winder getting up there. Let me go get my safety blast shield. Not so tough! Now are you here we go proper west coast donnie brook there boys easy six-pack.

    A pneumatic hammer would've helped break the oxide layer. I wonder if there is some sort of cordless hammer…

    I've been there. Take a long handle sledge beat the BeJesus out of it side to side and then on top. That compresses all the expanded rust and she will slide out like Bob's your Mother's brother.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Chaffee says:

    Yep, think you were right and there was a bolt on the innerside. I always heat first and then spray penetrating fluid. That way it sucks the fluid in deeper. The same concept as sweating pipes.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars EliteMacFreak says:

    Would using anti-seize have helped prevent the rusting, or by the time that you tried disconnecting would all that have evaporated?

    As a feller, who used to work for a company that made such darn things (tube in tube hitches). How old timers used to loose the moose: lubed er up with WD40, set a bolt/nut through the pin hole. And let the pneumatic hammer vibrate the darn thing on the lowest torque setting. Younger mechanics, they sometimes forgot to turn the torque value down…and turned a square tube into an egg.

    Propane without extra oxygen is just a waste of time in my experience. You really need to heat it up to glowing point to drive out the H20 that is chemically bonded in rust.

    Think you need to give that Rickshaw to ole Peg to try pulling a Kunts-Worthington out of a snowbank.. she'd be oot in no time

    WD-40, PB Blaster, Liquid Wrench, 3/1 oil, brake fluid, nutbuster, doesn't matter which one you use, they need time to achieve adequate penetration. That's why I always tell my guys "Put it on, have a smoke, let the chem's chem!"

    Now I’m glad my hitch is loose and rattley.
    I thought I should shim the fit because the looseness bugs me.
    But no more. I’ll be happy when time comes to take it out.

    I've got a steering dampener on the drag link that's stuck like this. Drilled that hippie 80% out and ran out of bits. Said to myself "I'll just let road vibrations work on it and it'll be out in a week."
    That was 2018, she's still in there.

    Told my cousin I could get his out not long ago, thought we were going pull the telephone pole we used as a back tie right on our heads… 4’ pry bar+ love taps with a sledge, all trying to time it right while the driver repeatedly backs up and then guns it…. Mission accomplished

    Last stuck hitch I had was on my old F350 service truck tha scaled a bit over 14k. Straped to a tree and let the diesel do its work in low gear of a 6 speed manua on pavement l. Truck squatted out pretty good before hitch popped.

    I used a pressure washer once. Goddamned thing just smoothed out like an eel in snot. Now my first go to when rusty things are stuck in rusty things. We pray to Lord PSI.

    Seems like you spent lots of time doing things the hard way.. don’t you know you could have just used words of affirmation and positive reinforcement?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phillip Reid says:

    I remeber being a wee lad and helping my dad trying to take off the ball to replace with a bigger one. After two of the longest wrenches I've ever seen, a can of map gas, and learning a whole lot of new words my mother disapproved of. He said screw it and bought a hitch and ball and threw the old in the forever box to never be seen again.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim D says:

    I would have cut it an inch away from the hitch mount then used a sawsall to cut through the insert on all sides. That would have relieved the pressure and allowed you to collapse the pipe and remove it.

    Been there, acetylene torch getting it glowong red and two guys with sledgehammers worked like a charm after 3 hours.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ed Lomonaco says:

    I had one frozen on an r/v.
    We oiled it, beat on it, torched it, pulled on it, hooked it to a tree and tried to rip it out and NOTHING, it was in there forever!!!!
    About a year later I pulled the pin and it came right out!
