    I have a shorted coil on my MET on the disappearing ball unit. I have the new coil but was wondering if anyone has a tip on how to remove the Loctite from the washer and the threaded rod without bending or breaking anything?
    Thanks in advance if anyone has a tip

    You could try heating the nut up using a soldering iron with hopes you can get the nut hot enough to expand just enough for you to break it free.

    I used this technique to break free a loctited nut during a cannon fix on AC/DC.

    Hey Mike,
    I have had success with the soldering iron. Go slow and give it time to heat up.
    I don’t think it’s actually expansion but the loctite itself heating up.
    I have seen the loctite bubble from the heat.
    Good luck.
