    Any trick to pulling stock IC?

    Is there any trick to pulling the stock IC on the 215 SCIC?

    I've got the clamp off and the hoses disconnected, but it is at a bad angle (On my Sportster 150 it is pretty close to the fuel tank.) and I can't pull the IC. I've never pulled it before and it seems pretty stuck. I can rotate it a few degrees either way, but I can't get enough force on it to get it any further out.

    Is there a smarter way to get it out?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    It should wiggle and pull out. You can try a pry-bar between the flange.

    Good point or it will pass into the engine.

    On a ski, can you see down the manifold? I'm working around a corner so I can't get much of a grip. I was thinking about getting some dowel sticks to put in the inlet and outlet nipples. Is that flange the sealing surface? It doesn't look too sturdy... I could get a screwdriver in there, but I am afraid I would break or damage the flange.

    Thanks for the quick responses!

    If your pulling it out to replace it with an external unit, I wouldn't be to worried about damaging it. It's a tight spot in the ski's as well, but it normally pulls out pretty easily after rotating it back and forth as you pull on it.

    I took all the oem air intake parts laying on the gas tank out and it was a little easier to pull out but still a pain.

    Gentlemen, BigDaddyRXP, Beerdart, rw40426, I owe you a beer. Thanks!



    I got it out and I got the seals. I am really glad you mentioned the seal because I would never have found the back one if I hadn't really been looking for it. I had a mirror and a light. I don't think the front one can come off easily, but the back had fallen down into the bottom and I would have missed it for sure.

    I think my problem was just the friction with the rubber. It is pretty cold here right now, relatively speaking. It is in the 50s F. and the rubber was just stiff. I've been having to use a heat gun to get hoses on and off all week.

    I attached a photo of the IC and seals...

    I really appreciate your help!
    Jim
