CCM pump question

So a buddy of mine just gave me a partial CCM T handle pump kit to use on my 2k pump project, but it needs some parts to get it up to being useable. I have the pump handle and arm, but I need to know what else I will need besides the pump arm guide to make it complete.



I got all the parts I was in need of, thank you to those who responded there. I now have a new question:

How in the crap do I separate the pump arm from the purple guide? I tried unthreading the two, but they seem to use some sort of unbreakable adamantium thread sealant. I tried heat, my drill press vise, and a hammer to no avail. Is cold the way to go with these or do I need more heat to loosen the sealant?

I need to use a longer pump arm to attach to the back block, otherwise I would have left it alone.

Thank in advance!

Your best bet is to Email Laurie or call, what youre going to need is the 2k guide rod and plate (basically a 2k pump kit minus the handle and arm).

I think the guide rod set and lower guide rod plate (teardrop shaped aluminum piece) we're $55 last time I emailed for some. They might not have the aluminum piece in polish to match the handle though.

Alright, so I ordered the plate and both arms from CCM but now I have a new question:

How in the crap do I separate the pump arm from the purple guide? I tried unthreading the two, but they seem to use some sort of unbreakable thread sealant. I tried heat, my drill press vise, and a hammer to no avail. Is cold the way to go with these or do I need more heat to loosen the sealant?

Yeah heat the crap out of it. Protip, unless you already have, take the pump plate off of the pump handle prior to heating the plate (learned the hard way on that one). Sometimes the Loc tite is a little stronger than others, I use a heat gun and just heat it up to where I can get the plate to turn (I clamp the pump arm in a vise with pennies to act as soft jaws).

Iíve got rubber pads to put in my vise to protect the parts. I was actually just hitting it with a lighter and then cranking on the pump rod because it is useless as it was anyways, but I will break out the heat gun as well as that seems like a much faster method just short of a torch.

To get more grip on the pump rod try using cardstock (The thick stuff, about 1/16th or so) instead of the rubber pads. I have rubber jaw covers but usually end up swapping them out because they squish too much and reduce clamping force, at least in my experience. The cardstock prevents all marring and if it does slip, the piece may come out shinier than before!
