i need this bitch off.
I removed every single bolt and nut and the oil filter housing just to get to that allen bolt and it still is glued TF on there in ONE spot. pry bar and 5 pound hammer for 3 god damn hours. ended up getting pissed off and SMACKING that bitch and cracked the top of it. :leghump: that bitch. i need it OFF !
It s the top left bolt. the nut is off of the stud but it's like it welded on there. it doesnt wiggle and show any gap but the rest of the housing does show ALL of gap.
Why cant i just sacrifice people to have things magically done.

GOT IT !
Damn stud had rust build-up internally between the cover and the bolt which acted like a super duper glue.
Now to learn how to weld cast.
