I understand that some states have restrictive laws and useless or needless laws. My statement was based on facts and the actual emissions tests(not visual tests). Anyone can achieve lawful pollution levels without the air pump etc, but some states also have visual tests that make no sense.

It doesn't make any sense to punish people for obeying the intent of a law, reducing emissions to certain levels, because something doesn't look right. So feel free to keep all of those useless parts to obey the bad laws mandating those.

If you could not achieve the required standards of allowable pollutants without those parts, then they should be required. But they are not required to do achieve that, so they should not be required.

Use a tight fitting closed end wrench, not an open ended wrench. Spray the joint there with a penetrant like PB Blaster, and give it time to work. With that you can usually always break them loose. Use an extension on the wrench if you have to. Turn it clockwise just a hair too to help loosen it.

You do need to spray it with some kind of penetrant, don't mess with it until you have something. A cleaner isn't going to help, find PB Blaster or even WD40.

You should be able to get the wrench on nit at some point to be able to at least break it loose. Once you move it at all, then it will be easy to use the wrench at any other angle alone to get it off. Flip the wrench over if that helps, just find a place to be able to put good leverage on it for the first bit to break it loose.
