    Siphon tube removal

    Tonight I plan on removing the siphon tube from the nozzle... Any hints or tips from people who have done this would be much appreciated

    I mixed up some JB Weld Quik set and used a small screwdriver to push it into the tube. Let it dry. Then took my die grinder with a cutting wheel and sawed off the tubes. Then smooth the inside of the nozzle with the grinder.

    So you removed the outside tube as well? I figured I would just cut off the inside tube and seal it up from there.

    I wish I could have you weld it, but I'm in Atlanta and Fedexing my GPR to you would be a bit pricey!

    How much did you heat it up to be able to punch it out?

    I used my miller aircrafter 330 syncrowave stepped on the pedal only enough to get the metal to an almost molten state ,put the torch right on the side of the bung and got it real hot...it knocked out easy...fedexxing a ski would be very expensive...but a nozzle housing would be cheap.....you could also punch out the tube and go to a good parts store and get some small brass freeze plugs(im not sure of size) dont use stainless on aluminum.

    I ended up just cutting it out... I then tig welded the hole shut. It turned out great, I can't wait to see if I can actually notice any difference.
