    Grilling cylinders

    The trick i found on this website does work,i just threw my triple cylinder 1200 cylinders on the grill for about an hour,sleeves fell right out,i had an older cylinder that needed sleeves so this is a money saver.I have not placed new sleeves in but i am sure that will work,just going to place the sleeves in the freezer and heat the cylinder back up.It was posted to place in the oven but all the smoke from the grill told me this is the better way,my neighbor came over and asked me what i was grilling,he was very shocked.

    I love ingenuity A pic would have been great, maybe with you in an apron and chef hat with some tongs in your hand

    They would have to be very heavy duty tongs,i did find that my basic gas grill with lid gets much hotter than your basic electric oven and works faster with no bad smell in the house,you do have to work fast as the temp outside is low,this works great for sleeve removal.sorry no pics at this time of the apron,i should have got one of my neighbors face when i opened up the grill.

    I agree with you on the heat, I can get mine up in the 550F range.

    Now dropping those sleeves in is going to be interesting. I have never changed sleeves in one of these, are they keyed for alignment?

    dropping the sleeves back in is easy,no alignment tabs just align the ports,they slide in so easy when you get them hot enough,i already did a trial run and alignment was no problem.

    Wish Yami took the time to line them up on original install take some pics when you are doing, it will be great to put in the how to section.

    Yes this does a great job of removal and installation of sleeves. You might try using a infared heat gun in measuring cylinder temp. You need approx 400 degrees to remove and install. Might try putting strap on sleeves you don't want removed. I think heating block for a hour could be too much.

    I was a little worried about heating them to long,but they are not warped so it looks okay,and yes if you do not want all the sleeves to fall out something to hold the others is a must,i replaced all mine so that was not a problem for me,when i picked the cylinder up all the sleeves fell out.
