    Stuck like glue

    How are you all breaking your stuck silencers loose? I'm sure the silencer on my 87 has been fastened to the head pipe for its entire existence however I am swapping my rusty crusty header for a shiny stainless replacement. I removed the clamp,spread the squished yet that suckered doesn't want to part
    I've ordered new gaskets so it's OK if it gets mauled. Never had such a stunborn silencer to remove.

    Mine is newer than yours but was still good and seated. First disconnected at muffler and head pipe and then head pipe and head. I needed to real firmly twist the head pipe up and down to get some twist/movement at muffler connection - a little WD 40 got things moving better and apart.
