>..... brake slave cylinders from two MGTD's. They are ALL rusted so
that the pistons are frozen in the cylinders. I have tried EVERYTHING to
get these things apart, including: WD-40, Liquid Wrench, PB Blaster and
molasses (don't ask). They are still frozen solid.
>My next step is to get out the blue wrench (propane torch). Since the
cylinders are aluminum and the pistons are steel, I expect that they will
expand at different rates when heated. Hopefully, they will release if
the aluminum expands more that the steel.
>Are my assumptions correct? Does aluminum expand more that steel when
heated? Am I in danger of splitting or otherwise damaging the cylinders
by doing this? Anybody got any better ideas?
Would the blue wrench not cause some warpage in the cylinders???
