    SLH jetpump long bolts question

    Has anyone had trouble removing the 4 long bolts holding the pump together? Need to change the rear housing but the bolts are seized solid? Nearly snapped em tonight trying to slacken them. Was thinking using a gas torch to try and gently heat the alloy but heat and alloy don't mix well

    ever try popping them lightly with a hammer while giving a good amount of torque to them sometimes it helps

    i have a small impact driver that will accept a 3/8 socket i've used that a few times for stubborn bolts works pretty good

    Use some pb blaster and let it soak for a day or longer. Reassemble with anti seize
