Need some a/c knowledge
 
Never done it, so I thought I should ask first.
Can someone tell me how to remove the feedneck from a pre-2k a/c.
Appreciate any help here..
Thanks in advance -- walz

Does it need to go back in?

WALZ 06-06-2013 11:08 AM

Humm..

Not sure but customer wants springfeed made tight to marker.
Would I/he be able to reinstall a feedneck after if he wanted.
(not necessary the original one). And can another be had if needed?

They are a pain to get back in and aligned right once out...they are fish mouthed to the inside of the bolt tube.

If it need to go back... collet and collet block an some heat.

If it doesn't matter vice grip and mallet.

Very cool - Thanks a lot BOS.
Will a heat gun do the job?

And by the way - sorry for destroying and selling you off in the Keep, sell, destroy thread. Your still one of my hero's man...

Real Heat Gun, Yes
Hair Dryer, most likely not

Its some nasty epoxy not loctite. Heat is more to get the feed neck to expand and crack it. A heat gun should do.... but I never intend to have them go back in once there out.

So, maybe heat it up and let it start to cool back down? I had an ego regulator do that to me the other day. Torched it hot and tried different grips with no success, but seemed to come apart in a padded vise with less effort after it had cooled a bit.

OK- heat er up to "crack" the epoxy and cool the feedneck down with ice.
Yep - That make sense. Hot body, cooler feedneck. expansion and contraction does the job.
Thanks guys - really appreciate the help.

When I did it, I heated up the neck and body with a heat gun [after removing all the guts from the body, heat and seals don't mix to well ;) ] then used some Freeze Spray on the neck separate the parts and pulled it out with a padded set of needle nose vice grips.
