    73 75/5 SWB Rear Pegs

    Any suggestions on removing the rear pegs? I can't budge them. Partly because the have been on there for over 40 rears but the angle seems near impossible.

    I would first start with a quality penetrant like Aerokroil. PB Blaster might be something to consider as well. Then let time do its magic...maybe finding a way to apply some heat like a heat gun...hot enough to warm things up but not so much as to melt paint/rubber.

    + 2 on the PB Blaster

    Spray it on both sides and let it sit a while, maybe overnight. A off set box wrench is the best one to use on them. They still sell those bolts if you break them.

    Or ATF and acetone (per Tom Cutter). Apply twice a day and tap the part a few times.
