    Fellas, I am trying to chase down an issue and my plow sales guy, Smith Bros Plow Parts, said to change the couplers, hoses (they were really old) and remove the swivel 90 degree elbow off of the block…. problem is the swivel will not break free of the block so as to be replaced w/ the tall 90 degree rigid elbow(I am afraid to really wrench down on it and do damage to the block)…..
    What should I do?
    Thanks ~Eric~

    Little bit of heat. Might not take to much, and its aluminum so nice and easy

    On the block... You want to expand the block not the swivel. At least that's what my memory tells me to do.

    To follow up,

    I banged this out w/ new hoses and couplers (pin-type) yesterday. I sawzalled the swivel off, carefully as there is not much to it, and used an 11/16 deep socket to get it off. I had to gorilla it but it saw things my way. I opted to not try heat unless I needed to. Thanks for the help,

    Cheers,
    Eric

    i just snapped the leaking swivel off mine.
    once the top was out of the way, the bottom section threaded rite out with a 6 point 11/16 socket
