Moyer Temp & Oil kit - toruble getting Temp. unit out

I am in the process of installing a few moyer marine upgrades for the A4. I am trying to finish the install of the temp. & Oil pressure kit and can't seem to get the temp. sending unit to loosen. Not sure if the PO used locktite of some other sealer but it won't budge. I have tried a pentrating oilwith no luck.

I worry about yanking on it to hard and was considering heating it up to see if that would work. Any reason I shouldn't do this... or tips on how I can get this pesky bolt out?

Thanks

Nigel

PB Blaster, heat, blood, sweat and tears.
If that doesn't work try dynamite!

Your talking about the sender in the front of the head ?

I had some stuff that i ended having to drill out or you can cut it off flush and collapse it carefully with a chisel and then chase the threads with a pipe tap

Cause i got stuff on my spare block that's been soaking 18 months and i am pretty sure its not gonna come out in the intended manner

PB Blaster and a pipe wrench worked for me. But I wasn't concerned with saving the old sending unit.
