I know the answer is get-er-done.
I am trying to take the two rusted bolts off that hold my main pump to the concrete.
Rusted after 6 years? I'm no chemist but ain't these bolts supposed to be galvanized? Or is galvanized merely "rust resistant" ?
Before I start beating the sh** out of these bolts and hopefully not damaging the flanges that they hold down, what do YOU do to release these bolts?
And then since the shaft will likely still be in the concrete and my pipes will limit the repositioning of the pump for new holes, do you drill out the shafts? With what kind of bit?
