Metal dustcaps stuck!!

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hi all,

 

Has anyone ever had to remove stuck metal dustcaps? I obviously put them on not realising i should have lubed them up, now they have bonded to the metal valve tip.

I got 2 off by using heat and gently twisting but 2 others are completely stuck! Any ideas?

Have you tried WD40 or similar?

Yeah! I actually had to saw one of the dustcaps down the middle then split it using brute force!
