I have did a search but mostly adds came back . Maybe I am not used to it will play later .

Any how I am trying to remove the rt assy . I have every bolt out and am trying to slide the female end off the double D bar . It doe's look like its crimped some , I used some heat but no movement . I carefully used a dead blow against the rag joint , but it won't come off .

It will how ever slide back and forth on the double D bar about a 1/2 inch or so . I am missing something here , when I studied the parts I see they can be separated .

Corrosion. Usually they won't move at all (seized). WD-40 and work it back and forth.

Something that works great to free rust/corroded parts is PBBlaster.

Still oiling , heating and using the dead blow no movement now , I think I may drill a couple excess holes on each one to allow PB to get in side the tube .

I have a couple of sets that have come apart properly if you damage what you've got in the process of getting them apart.
