Jeff I want to thank you for all your assistance. I was using a 3/4" ratchet on the bolt but it still didnot break free. Will try again tomorrow morn. I am attempting to put my black baby back together tomorrow. Gonna try to regain her favor by adding the new Bosch's and plugwires I picked up for her today, new filter and Valvoline, as well as adding WaterWetter then soothing her skins with a new bottle of Lexol, then a sponge bath and a rubdown(wife never should have left me alone in the parts store). Wish me luck, I hope to get lucky!!
