    What's up guys,
    I have a Meyers e47. Right now my plow is straight. It was stored away over the summer with the power angle hose fittings connected to themselves( if that makes sense). The hose from the truck came right off, but the hose on the plow is stuck real bad. The sleeve moves freely, but I can't get the hose to disconnect. I tried alittle hammering lightly, even a lighter to try and heat it alittle. Any ideas on getting this apart without destroying the fittings. I can get away with plowing straight in my lots, but I'd like to have the option if I can for a few long driveways.

    Try spraying the connection with a product called PB Blaster. It worked for me on rusted hydraulic couplers. I bought my last can at Auto Zone.

    What Dan said. This stuff actually works. I haven't found anything that's even close to it's rust busting power!!

    Spry with your penetrating oil. Take some vise grips and clamp on male fitting, not too tight, and hammer on the vise grips while wiggling back and forth. (the vise grips, not your ass....lol)

    You gotta watch the hammering on that fitting, you could break it in the pump housing. Take it out of the pump and put it in a vise. If you dont and you break it you wish you had.....Rob


    Oh ya, the Pb is good stuff
