CCM Air fitting removal
 
anyone else having a hard time getting off the CCM air fittings after they have set in place? I snapped an allen trying to get mine off. should i use a lighter to try and heat it up? any internals i might mess up by doing so?

never had a problem with mine but it is hard to get the macro line out

the only thing you could mess up is the orings and they are easy to replace

if your one of the lucky ones that doesnt have wrench flats on your inner, i recommend vicegrips and leather for padding

Great advice Tracker! I've installed a set and replaced a post since they apparently stopped milling the flats in the posts and buggared up some alittle trying to get them tightened down. Can't figure out why they would stop milling it hat way when it almost seems essential.

Warm water or a blow dryer should do it. I use a heat gun to get the fitting toasty and soften the loctite, just be sure to use Blue Loctite not red. Remember just a little loctite goes a long way.
