more tension,

After a couple of times, the case will usually pop right open. When you doing this? You have any questions, you can give me a call.
Thats what I planned on doing, I just didn't know if it was standard practice to use some heat or something.....

obviously never I've done this before, but I've done more than my share of pressing things apart in the auto world and occasionally heat is standard practice.....and with those components the aluminum is usually quite a bit thicker, so you're not as worried about breaking things

I should be doing this within the next week or so - all depends on when I get around to it since it's going to be spring's gotta get done sometime soon though, spring is comming
