I recon you've all scared this Zubol guy off

Bang it..

Hit it..

WD40 it..

Copper slip it..

Angle grinder it..

Blow torch it..

Freeze spray it..

Molyslip it..

R.E.M.E it..

Skip it..

Wiggle it..

I bet he wished he never asked the question..

After all it was the 6 CSK screws he wanted to undo

Expansion rates

Heating the boss with a hot air gun will do the job as the alloy has a different expansion rate to steel (much higher) so as they both grow the alloy will grow more for given temprature rise.

If that does not work cut it off !!

I'm in agreement with this approach - not worth the risk . Its a cheap (relatively ) replacement, and its pretty important it works ( all the time you are out)

Just as well he didn't ask about replacing a patch on the tubes
