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

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

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?
