How many of you guys use Gibbs on your tractor projects? How is or isn't comparable to WD-40?

I use it on things that are real bad ,works good. And BTW almost anything is better than WD-40 as a penetrating oil. WD stand for water displacing. Just my opinion

So you just mix half and half acetone and tranny fluid? Do you use a squeeze bottle or will it flow in a oil squirt can? Im assuming you wouldn't want it near any painted surface with the acetone in the mixture

WD doesn’t hold a candle to Gibbs, it’s not cheap, but works great

Most people think WD40 is a penetrating oil - NOT. As mentioned the WD stands for water dispersant. It was developed as a protectant. Do a Google search on WD40. Anything is better than WD40. JMO

I’ve used every kind of snake oil there is and it mostly revolves around the situation. If really stuck, keep it soaked with the thinnest solvent you can find and then be patient. Some people swear by Coke. Some use acids. I’ve used carb cleaner to penetrate sometimes. Heat is the best thing as far as I’m concerned. After 40 years of doing this, I’ve settled on wd40 for a penetrant, it works as good as any. I will add, if I get it to move, Schaeffer’s Pentro 90 is a great lubricant. I just don’t believe that one type fits all situations.

Stores here only carry BP Plaster and WD-40. WD-40 makes a gel lube also.
