Backstay hardware, threaded or not?
I'm removing my backstay for inspection and lube. I want to remove the round piece (Name?) at the end of the backstay (see pictures, sorry, one's out of focus). It looks like it is threaded onto the backstay, but then again, maybe not. I've used penetrant and it doesn't want to unthread. Don't want to force it if it's not treaded. Thoughts?
I'm planning on performing a corrosion dye test on the members.
