I'm trying the get the gauge port plug out of my brother's check it assualt block, however, its red loc tited, and no ammount of force will get it out. Now I don;t want to damage the anno, but I was thinking of taking a blow torch to it. IS there any better way anyone knows of breaking the loc tite?

Thank ye kindly sirs

Try a hair dryer first....
Get it as hot as you can, then IMMEADIATLY torque on it....
That should do it!

Take a lighter first... not a blowtorch... blowtorch will destroy the anno if your not careful... Lighter, as long as you keep it close to the part without letting the tip touch it (the tip of the flame will leave a burn residue) and slowly heating it should work.

1) Boil water in pan
2) Remove pan from heat
3) Completely immerse block in water for about 4 minutes(make sure there are no o-rings on the block)
4) Remove block from pan
5) Scream bloody murder because you bunt the hell outta your hand(NVM, forget that one) :D
6) Holding the block w/a cloth, quickly remove the plug w/an allen wrench
7) Ask bro, "Am I(meaning you) da man or what?"
