When heating up the nail, could I use a normal lighter?

You know, that really looks like a good tool. But that grip it has, which goes around the rounded screw seems to me like it is just going to strip the screw.

Heat it up that's the oily way to break the loctite. If you strip out the head use a dremel and cut a slot on the screw it will come ou that way. If there is plasic in your engine mount then you need a new alum one piece mount. Check out kingheadz. A one piece mount will not only help prevent flex around the clutch bell and spur gear, it adds strength to the case and makes pulling the engine out and putting it back in very easy. Spend he 50 bucks it makes life easier.

heat them up, if they strip you can easily use pliers to get them screws off. Easy fix.

I have two McCoy59 glow plugs which I have kept since 2005, brand new. Am I safe to use them with my engine, or are they too old?

Glow plugs dont go bad, as long as they are sealed, not full of dirt

Good, thanks for the quick reply. I'm about to heat up my nail to losen the engine mounts screws. But before that, I came across a toolbox available for me to purchase. Some quality Hex-Screwdrivers. I looked in my manual and the sizes in that toolbox fit my needs.

Do you recommend buying this set (hex screwdrivers) and losen the screws with those instead of the low-quality hex drivers that were included with my kit? (The drivers that are like "L" in shape)
