Good old Paraffin can be very effective. position so gravity helps it seep through

Hmm, I've never had an axle with adjustable cone bearings actually seize to the hub all the ones I've worked on dont contact the hub anywhere, the only contact being with the cones which thread on....what stage of disassembly are you stuck at Steve?, if the cones are off it should fall out

edit...or am i reading this wrong and you mean the bearings themselves are seized?

+1 on the ATF plus Acetone, or even ATF + Meths, don't know why ATF is so good, might be the additives, but it's my go to solution for seized assemblies on my old MG

Thing about a gas torch is, If the components will withstand the heat it ALWAYS works! Nige.

trying to get the exhaust nut off my vara (without the stud!) will try acetone/ACF as 2 weeks of WD40 has not done anything.

Take it out with the stud, then you can split the nut and replace it. Put the stud back with some Loctite to hold it tighter in head.
