Are you turning it the right (left) way :dontknow:


I gotta admit I checked it wasn't a reverse thread, but no luck. Self doubt started creeping in!

Basically, it's a fairly long bolt, and the threaded part sinks pretty deep into the nose of the eccentric shaft. Then, most likely someone has used copious amounts of red loctite or equivalent on it, and my little propane torch won't get it hot deep enough to melt it.

So, Oxy/Ace till it's glowing cherry red, then rattle that sucker off. It's a common issue. I'm just not equipped with the right heat source at the moment, and we really were just hoping the propane torch would be enough. :dontknow: My other issue is that my crappy compressor can only run the gun at full power for no more than 10 seconds.

I just saw a great tool at work the other day for getting stuck nuts and bolts out, and also heating bearings and other press fit parts etc for easy on/off.

Its an induction coil heater made specifically for things like that. Simply put the nut or bolt or whatever you want in the coil, squeeze the trigger and within a few seconds its glowing red. Way quicker than an oxy, and very easy to evenly heat a part or specifically target a part. Very impressive tool.

Man, that's awesome! Just watched some YouTube vids on them.

I ended up getting the bolt out on the weekend. Just to reveal the motor is in worse shape than I had hoped. Quite a bit of money in new parts required, so weighing up the options at the moment.
