Will it turn or will it snap?
As part of my winter jobs I want to tidy up the routing of the cables at the stern, this would involve turning the brass fitting in pic 1 through about 150 degrees clockwise. Three questions for the experts out there:
1 What chance have I of doing this without snapping it off?
2 What method of sealing would be used on hydraulics, PTFE or some kind of liquid compound that sets hard over time?
3 If I did snap it off how hard would it be to find a new one?
