Check your local bicycle shop. They have thin 36mm wrenches.

I bought a cheap 36 mm combination wrench and ground off the end just enough to fit over the pipe.

Always tough getting these apart. Most are frozen from Steel-Aluminum dissimilar metal electrolysis or just plain rust.

Yours looks pretty clean, you may get lucky and it comes apart without issue.

Most important is to use "Anti-Sieze" paste on the threads when reassembling.

Disimilar metals.

You are correct.

The dissimilar expansion values can be an issue.

The line started leaking for no apparent reason.

I may just move forward with uwon's idea
if I can find a short 36mm wrench,
or just cut one off to the desired length
as there is not much room to swing a wrench
at that location.

Thanks,

Gerry

It is 36mm but you are right that there is not much room for a wrench. Many people remove the entire unit with lines and all then bring it to a bench to remove the lines. Some even ended up cutting up the nut to get the line off. Good luck.

The difference in expansion rate isn't the issue.
The problem is the galvanic corrosion from the difference in the anodic index of the of the dissimilar metals.

Harbor Freight has a set of metric "service wrenches" that work OK for this. The handles are short but you can slip a piece of pipe over them for extra leverage.

That is why my cut wrench works in that tight space. You have several additional positions.

Hey Dr Gerry,

You can borrow my oil line wrenches :-)

Just let me know,

J

The trick is holding the thermostat housing in place while you tighten, I got you covered for that too :-)

Hey Jim,

I just bought one as per member Uwon's suggestion.

I'll have to cut it down.

Thanks,

Gerry

Another reason for complete removal. There’s also the issue of reinstalling/threading the nut back on. Two flexible ends are easier to align; less chance to crossthread the relatively fine threads.
