That's a good article. Last thing I would think of is sticking heat to a brass and steel combo, but a little bit at a time sounds like it works.

I just had to get a rusty and crusty brake line free from the rear wheel cylinder on the Dana 70 in the donor 93.  I had to heat, PB blaster, heat, PB Blaster....etc for some time before I got the nut free to spin on the brake line.
