thisisus is on a distinguished road
Well went down after work for another shot at the evil prop. Left it last night with the wheel puller attached and a load on it. Got down and started lightly heating it...kept my hand on the shaft to make sure did not get too hot. After about 3 minutes heating it all over it suddenly popped loose. So the dragon is slayed. On to putting a new prop on and get her in the water. Thanks for all the advice and help. Really appreciate it.
