      Everytime I hear someone talk about deleting power steering I think about this post. Andy you the man!

Do some god damn research you fucking nOOb.

                  Guibo flange? There is a nut on the other side you have to hold..

                  Any of you 24v lovers need an OBD1 Intake mani (bare)..?

                          Find a picture, having a hard time trying to mentally grasp what bolt you're on... Take a break, spray some PB blaster and come back to it in a few hours if anything else.

                            That sum-bitch right in the middle there.

                            I am on day two, bought PB Blaster today and just gave that bolt a bath.

                              First, take that little metal lock ring out. Then get a thin wall 30mm socket for 1/2" drive. Use an impact and break that slut off.

                                Never really had a need to un-bolt that one... It's not reverse threads is it? haha
