Vts nut size
Hey guys, I did a search and seems as though the vts nut is 43mm. Can someone just confirm this as I am at work and going to acquire a tool for the job..

Heat up A PVC pipe and push it over the nut and let it cool.

I tried the PVC pipe trick, and despite many attempts it seemed that the nut was tightened just a little too much to crack it with the PVC pipe. I was able to form a really good and tight mould, even after leaving it for some time to cool down, the PVC would slip before i could apply enough torque.
So i resorted to your idea Breon, but after searching every hardware/plumbing store in this shitty town i found nothing big enough to go over the nut.
By this time sheer frustration was really setting in. I Ended up taking to a shifter with a 4 inch grinder to come up with something. Despite not looking pretty, it done the job. I only retightened it as tight as i could get with the PVC, so i will be able to use that method next time.
I put the bailer tube back on the connection and hose clamped it on!! also changed the other one to a hose clamp aswell. Now she is all back together ready for a test ride in the morning. Fingers crossed i have no more issues and i can report my results
If anyone is curious, i think the nut was 34mm.
