unscrewing the 2" to M54 adapter from OAG
« on: June 16, 2013, 08:32:25 pm »
Hello,

I'm trying to unscrew the 2" to M54 adapter (part #5) from the OAG, but it is very tight. I'm wondering if it is glued to the Main body (part #6). I really can't remember if it was already attached to the main body when I bought the OAG. Any help appreciated.

Clear skies,
Luiz

It should not be glued to the main body (unless you bought it used and the previous owner glued it). You may try using a small
strap wrench which would remove it with no marks.

Thanks Mike and Vince,

I managed to unscrew it, using a bit more force :)

Best Regards,
