I could always resort to cutting off the old cap and replacing it with a $25 new one.....but I am German and (cheap like a Dutchman) and don't wanna spend more money than I need to.
Drinking a few beers during this process did not seem to make a difference either.

Fred:
Put them in a big vise, and get a big pipe wrench. Don't worry about the edges of the caps, that's why we have files in the toolbox.

You might find warming the housing may help. Cool the cap though before you get the stilsons on it.

Fred, I tell you this because I just did it. First heat the assembly however you would like (Boil, heat gun, torch etc...) Then when heated, place the cap itself into your vice and crank it down, then use a SOFT rubber mallet and tap the assembly in the correct rotation and it will come off pretty easily.
You are going to put some small marks in the side of the cap, but these will hurt nothing besides your knowladge of them. I reused the aluminum sealing ring too and it didnt leak.
