    I don't have any good ideas... but I bet your chest is going to hurt like a 8!+¢# for a few weeks after you get it done! :D:D:D

    I beat Glocknut to it!!

    I use a socket, attached to a T-drive. After removing and cleaning, I lightly coat the nipple threads with a commercially available anti-seize lubricant.

    Mike,

    You remind me a bit of my uncle, both in looks and in your sense of humor. So you're not my only "bad" influence! :D
