Got a fun one, bought a 351w for 600 bucks and tore it down partway, now the guy I bought it off of said it was stuck but I didn't think he meant so ****ing stuck that not even a 3 foot long pipe wrench could turn it stuck, I've broke off the cap trying to get it off and nothing me and dad have done thus far such as beating it with a hammer at various points to try and shock it free or various wrenches and letting it sit with lube in it for a week has done any good. I'm gonna hit it hard sometime tomorrow to try and get it out but I want some extra ideas so I'm not totally flying blind on it. Any and all help and advice as welcome. Thanks in advance, Shadow.

Reason: To tired to spell "got" correctly aparently XD.
A small propane torch should do it, if it's going to do it. You want to heat it up, not melt it.
Can you look in from below to see if the base of the body is rusted to the block, or something like that?
Maybe you've done this already, but when I faced a similar situation, I got on top of the engine so I could pull straight up. The distributor popped right out, where as hours of prying and pulling before while standing beside the engine did nothing.
Never had this happen - (yet) what's the deal anyway, is it heavy corrosion? From dissimilar metals or something, pitting, swelling? On my 292 it popped right out. Assuming when they are stuck like that, no adjustment of timing is possible either?
