Removing rusty blade adjusting bolts on the JEY

HI does any one know how to remove rusty blade adjusting bolts out of a jey 12" chipper?
After removing the knife and the wedge from the adjacent knife well, the opposite end of the ajustment screw takes a much larger allen wrench, which you can apply alot more torque to. Clean it out the wood chip dust & junk, let it soak with PB Blaster and go for it. You should be able to get it to loosen up.

Search on JEY manual - I posted the pages for replacing and adjusting the knives, which includes some nice original drawings from Asplundh

chris........saw a couple videos on replacing bearings and it looks way beyond my competence level....so...couple questions pls if you've time. Don't know which model we have as it's so covered with old paint and such. 8cyl engine, chipper has a 20" long drum w/ a 15" diameter, 3" shaft....but it looks like the old JEY whisper chipper.... Can I still get bearings for it from Altec and do you know anybody in the Bangor, Maine area that can work on these marvelous old monsters? Thx....gordy [email protected]
