    This is a good example of why most mechanics think that most drivers are idiots. ;)

    Except mechanics did that all the time at my last company. Although they used pblaster instead.

    Yup, according to our mechanics there is no corrosion seizure that cannot be solved with pb blaster and a torch. I've seen the results so I don't question the method.
    As long as it's safe there's a whole lot of things that the office doesn't need to now about the shop.

    In 22 years, I’ve never failed to successfully slide stubborn tandems (my own or helping out another driver) using a hammer, lubricant, and/or wheel chocks, unless there was some other mechanical issue. And even then I’ve been able to “adjust” pins to at least get it to a shop.
