    @RogerH69 "All of the bolts holding the cable in place that I removed were VERY rusted, and most of them needed the breaker bar to get them loose"
    A great achievement in itself to undo those rusted bolts without shearing/snapping something off.

    I assume you also used some kind of releasing spray. If so, which one did you use?

    I used WD40 on the first 2 bolts I did (without breaker bar) . I then sprayed WD40 on the first of the bolts I used breaker bar on.
