I started restoring a Wayne 515. I am struggling to disassemble it. Every bolt/screw is stuck. I have tried WD40 and heat, but still can’t get them to break loose. I’m now starting to twist off the screwdriver head of the machine screws. Also what can I do with the screws that have damaged screwdriver heads? Any advice/help would be appreciated. Merry Christmas

I've had the best luck with Free all penetrating oil over wd40

Welcome to Visible Gas Pump Restoration Class! Every pump is a learning classroom for every person doing the restoration! There is a lot to learn as far as the easiest ways to free up bolts and the proper tools to use, but when its all said and done, there is no easy way to go about it! You are on the right track with penetrating oils, impact drivers, and anything else you might choose to use! On steel screws, maybe welding a nut on top of the screw and using an impact wrench? How about grinding the heads off and using a vise grip pliers on them along with heat of course? There are so many different ways to attack the problem and just about as many ways in which the problem will be different.
My plan of attack has always been liberal applications of penetrating oil over a period of a couple weeks, and then liberal use of heat and use of lots of different tools! Its not impossible but it does take a lot of patience to work on these old pumps! Good luck!

Kevin is absolutely correct. I may be a bit more impatient, but as a last resort, I grind the head off, drill the screw/bolt out and tap new threads matching the size of the original fastener. It's important to have a good set of sharp taps but works well as a last resort. I just did a Tokheim 36 that had been missing its top for many years and must have used this approach on at least a dozen bolts!

If all else fails try heating it up, then taking paraffin wax and applying it to threads.. doesn't smell so good but works


I collect Phillips 66 and globes pumps & signs esp Iowa co.

My favorite is PB Blaster penetrating oil. Other times I drill into the head of the screw and the head pops off.

Isn't a Wayne 515 the pump that requires extra support at the top before you start pulling the skins off???


ALWAYS LOOKING FOR ANYTHING UNION 76 WOULD LIKE TO FIND A UNION 76 BALL TO DISPLAY NEXT TO MY SHOP.

I was hoping that I was over looking something obvious. I appreciate the advice from you guys. Looks like I’ll be spending a lot of my holidays in my shop.
