Does anyone have experience in splitting the lower end case in half? There are two screws that hold it together, but they seem to be seezed up for good.

It's all about the BOOTY

No, but it brings back memories. My high school grad present was one - in 1970!

There is a sort of "impact driver" that you can purchase for around 10 dollars that works wonders on fasteners that are "stuck" in aluminum. You insert the screwdriver bit of choice, apply a little bit of torque in the proper direction, then whack it with a hammer.

Here's a link to a picture of one:

Both the Impact driver and heat from a torch, and PB blaster used with time "May" work.

Heat and an impact driver are your friends but ga canny as ali melts more easily than some imagine and that casting is irreplaceable I think.
