    Broke the hex head off the ram packing nut on Isarmatic. anyone fix this problem? Does the ram extract from the case without removing the threads, or must threads be removed to get ram out? One piece aluminum housing, cannot seperate ram tube from pump housing.

    :salute:soak it down with some kroil or screw loose for a while and just work on it with a small punch and chisel ,might have to use a little bit of heat .their is a snap ring or split retaining ring at the bottom.
