Whether you run the engine or use a torch, you run the risk of burns--you should be wearing long sleeves (cotton or wool, no synthetics--they melt!) and mechanics' gloves for this job if you're even the least bit clumsy. Helps avoid the near-inevitable bloodshed when it finally lets go, too.

Most penetrants will not work well in deep cold. Use the torch or the engine to warm the assembly before each application.
