Re: Rigid vang seized
Nope, couldn't find any maker information on there. Anyway, what I suspect had happened is the vang had been left under load for a looong period of time. The piston is a hard rubber and I think it had compressed and expanded sideways causing it to jam. I eventually got the end cap out, got the piston out and sanded it down a bit, cleaned it all up, regreased and reassembled. There was not a hint of corrosion anywhere.
