BTW, it is a pet peeve of mine when manufacturers make things with straight threaded ports with no o-ring land. Even the "good ones" do it. If it has no o-ring land, it should be tapered threaded.

So yeah, getting the ******* turbine to separate from the CHRA is no ******* joke. Is sitting now with PB blaster hopefully I can get it to separate tonight

It will happen. When removing my turbine housing I actually used the bolts to press against the CHRA and push the housing off.

Try using some heat.

Is my assistance needed? Do you need me out there? Too bad half the Navy has been deployed on the ground in Afghanistan picking up the slack for the Army and AirForce who simply don't have the manpower. I doubt we'd give a **** if an entire flotilla of rafts was spotted. I just hope they don't land on the shores of Arizona.

buffuck, you are a complete knucklehead.

But, somehow, I STILL like you. I don't know why. Can someone go over to his parking lot and help him with this build?

your raft sprung a leak; so who else would you call? The Navy would be a great place to get someone out to you with a big boat that could carry all your friends.
