T2 disassembly problems
I want to send out my T2 for anno. I cannot get a couple of parts disassembled.
How do you remove both pump arms from the pump handle? The arm with the AT on it is easy enough to remove. The other (right) arm has nothing to grip. Any tips on removing the right pump arm? Preferably without scaring the heck out of it.
How do you separate the feedneck from the part that attaches the feedneck to the top tube? I can remove the clamping ring easy enough but the other two parts of the feedneck won't come apart? I have tried hot water and swearing at it. These have been ineffective.

call ccm or if you have these basics tools you can DIY
2 penny's, vice grips and a lighter is what you will need for the rods,
a strap wrench and lighter to separate the mounting plate for the feed neck
rod removal take two penny's sandwich the rod with them and clamp them down with vice grips the penny's will keep you from damaging the rod then use the lighter to heat the rod where it meets the pump plate this will loosen the loctite and dont worry the lighter will not effect the anno then unscrew the rod
Feedneck removal use the lighter again to heat the neck where it meets the mounting plate with feed neck so it will loosen the red loctite used from factory then with the feedneck attached to the gun use a strap wrench to separate the neck from the mounting plate or lock a hopper tight and turn
on reassemble of RODS its very important you make sure the lengths are even most ppl mess this up and it will effect the stoke! ROD @CCM takes the essence of perfection when he builds t2's ensuring rods are equal and binding is non existent upon assemble

Someone's definitely done it. I Just looked at my wife's T2 and decided that I shouldn't be allowed near it with tools.

I prefer using Channel Locks over vice grips. The Channel Locks slip more and do more damage.
The penny idea is actually really good. I'm going to try that next time I have to take a pump arm off.

A pot of boiling water is a good alternative to fire.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I never would have thought of the penny trick. I like to know I am doing the right thing before I really start torquing on something. I have a couple of extra T2 pump handles to experiment on before I attempt the one I want to anno.
TF: Suggesting you take a dremmel to a CCM Product. You should ban yourself for that sacrilege.
