FYI, trivia for those who didn't know, WD-40 was developed as a water displacer (hence, the "WD") and just happened to be a pretty good rust loosener and lubricant.

And for that reason it was good stuff to spray on ignition wires years ago to keep moisture from affecting them. Now those wires are far superior quality and we can use WD 40 to release bolts.

That is ture....WD 40 stands for Water Displacement 40th try. It took them 40 tries to get it right hence...WD 40
What did we ever do without it? 3-n-1 oil I guess.

Hi, if we, you or me, tried to do something forty times before we got it right we would be severely punished.
