Hi Fellas! I'm trying to remove my starter and I was wondering if anyone knows a trick to get that pesky lower mtg bolt off. It's on really tight. Does the exaust manifold need to be removed? If anyone has any tips with r&r on my starter it would be greatly appreciated! 2007 FJ
Thanks Guys

Found some at hf. Not working and now the bolt is getting bunged up. What a day. I'm gonna step back and regroup for a minute.

also somewhere in the depths of discussion on the webs was this magical stuff

Loosens Frozen Metal Parts! ... Nothing Works Like Kroil
Kroil - An industry proven penetrating oil that has no equal. Used by 480 of the Fortune 500 companies!

Based on scientific discoveries at Kano Laboratories, Kroil creeps into millionth inch spaces, breaks bonds due to rust, corrosion, contamination, or compression and lubricates to loosen frozen metal parts.
Independent Research Report (Click Here)
Nothing Works Like Kroil - Solid Science

Kroil's unique, proprietary molecular architecture creates an affinity to metal that guarantees swift penetration, while maintaining a molecular structure capable of breaking bonds at the first molecular level. This unique molecular architecture was chemically engineered in the laboratory based on research which defined the interdisciplinary physical, electrical, mechanical and chemical properties which cause frozen metal parts. This research enabled Kroil to be chemically engineered to loosen frozen metal parts in every instance regardless of the cause.

As with Jimbo's recommendation of PB Blaster it to is my go to P-Oil of choice which is readily available locally almost anywhere.

But I do have a co-worker who swears by that Orange Can Kroil stuff. I've been meaning to order a can of it to give it a try sometime.

Ive been using Kroil for 20+ yrs. Best penetrating oil IMO. Though not as readily available on a Sunday afternoon when you run out. In such a case, ill use PB blaster as a substitute until i get another supply of Kroil.

GOT IT OUT! Stopped by Sierra to ask Will what he thought. He went in the shop and brought out a "nut extractor". Basically a female version of a screw extractor. Coupel shots of pb blaster and snap...it broke free! Took snother 15 min to get the starter out and get the new one in. Ordered a new bolt from Riverview Toyota, ready for pick-up Tue am.
Big Thank You for the advise and opinions!
