Removed the T-stat from the fender and have it in a vice. Trying to remove the screw caps is impossible.
Have been soaking them with PB Blaster, but they are still locked solid. I have a Stilson on them and realy don't like chewing up the edges of the cap.....but still cannot come loose.
Any tricks to get these caps off?
I do not want to destroy the cast housing by really pounding on the cap, but I wonder if the previous owner ever lock tited r sealed the threads somehow which makes this thing impossible to get loose now.
