I bought a used truck a few weeks back and have been trying my best to get the hitch out of the receiver (yes the pin is out ;-). It’s rusted in there so bad it just will not budge. I’ve tried dousing it repeatedly with WD-40. Today I heated it with an acetylene torch so hot you could fry bacon on it in a matter of seconds. With it blazing hot, using a 2″ ball installed upside down I beat on it unmercifully with the biggest hammer I own… nothing.
Any ideas how I can get this
thing out? It’s just lurking and waiting to take a chunk out of my shin.
Murphy’s law says I should hook up my trailer, no pin, no chains and get it up to eighty mph during rush hour traffic. That sucker will cut loose then.
