Godzilla ??
Who put this bloody atty together ?? Was it godzilla ??
It arrived this morning and at first I was as happy as a pig in shit, but that was before I decided to open it up and put a coil in it.
IT'S SEIZED SOLID....Tried heating it up, ytied putting it in the freezer, tried rubber bands, even lost the plot and tried using the pliers on my leatherman all to no avail.

Next attempt will be at my garage where I have a vice and BF Pliers, but the metal is already showing signs of distress.....I might just bin it and put it down to experience.
Insert smart and witty comment here.....

I assume that you removed the 510 pin first before attempting to unscrew it... Other than that, I can't figure why it would be so seized-up..

Finally after about six hours (on and off) I finally got the bugger separated....





And the worst thing about it is that I'm not that keen on it so far..:( :(
