    Expecting the worse aren't there special sockets for removing bplts with rusty heads?

    I am sure I have seen them advertised and thought I must buy them sometime!

    Just looked it up "rusty nut/bolt removal socket set". Look carefully at the internal shape - I assume you have to hammer them on. Not sure whether combined with an impact screwdriver with 1/2" drive helps.

    Anyone used these type of sockets?

    As I am in Portugal what else do I need to consider, carberetter chamber? Rocker cover? Did I read to replace rockers.

    Engine not used much but stays on pushpit all year?

    They do work but to get to the recessed power head bolts you need long reach ones

    Erbauer blt and nut remover socket sets £12.99 from screwfix. Works for me on rounded bolt heads, and damaged allen key bolts.
    Not sure where you would get them in Portugal!

    Thanks will get one of our many visitors to bring them out. Amazing how popular you get when living in a Portuguese holiday resort!

    I cant find them in screwfix catalogue. Do you have a better description or no and are these the deep ones that Steve recommends?
