Well after soaking it for five days with PB Blaster and buying a 1/2 inch punch... I broke the punch Saturday and the bolt is still only moving about 1cm back a fourth. Next step is to slap it back together and take it to Xenia to see what can be done now.

I can't afford to keep my own shit fixed. I really don't need to be breaking yours.

I'll be poor as shit, but I figure I'll take about 6 months and leave the household to Meredith to run, and just ride around the US, Canada, and Mexico.

I've actually kind of been hoping they lay me off, I'll never get to do it otherwise.

Hey, I'm retiring at the end of the year, figuring on doing the same thing.
Poor, but happy!

Don't forget the 6 weeks before the first check, weekly proof you are looking for another job and the fact it's only 1/5 of what you make now. I've been off unemployment for three years now and living off savings and part time jobs. I am lucky that I never got into debt and have always live debt free. Makes living a lot less expensive.

You would last maybe 6 months and then you would go insane. Most of us here would. Hell I have been on vacation for only a day and I am going stir crazy. lol

I'm hoping John and Becky have a press we can use. It's that or I get people over here and try to use the tractor.

I have a chance to retire on July 29th, I'm tempted to see how long I can stand it before I go stir crazy.

Most parts stores have a loan a tool program and you can try a ball joint press or something similiar. Spray it with liquid nitrogen to shrink it first, you're the chemist arent you? lol Let me know if you need a hand this week.

Liquid nitrogen is hard to get and harder to control. Don't wanna crack the frame or engine case. John is likely to have the best bet as a professional mechanic with a machine style shop. He's just a busy man.

Yeah, keep in mind I parted one out. So I've taken one apart down to nuts and bolts before.
