FT-160 rod removal help, please
Hi Bax, I am working on an FT-160 and cannot get the small bolts loose that hold the connecting rod and cap together. I have tried heat, both directly on the rod with a micro torch, and also placed the bottom end assembly in an oven at 275 degrees. Neither helped, and I am afraid I will strip the bolt heads if I use any more force.
Got any suggestions?? Thanks in advance.
