Circumcise your slaves!

Thanks go out to the resisdent gurus who guided a noob through this for the first time. That 30MM was a beech. Took a 4 ft. piece of pipe on a 1/2" breaker bar. No loctite to be found. Must have been a huge German powerlifter roaming around the factory back in 8/99.

After performing a post-mortem on the pressure line that prompted the odyssey here

I have concluded that a doing a preventative circumcision of the sheath around the line would have prevented the rot. So, I trimmed the new one and tied it back so it won't creep up. I guess the rabbi's might be onto something after all.

Yep, that's just what mine looked like. What a stupid design. It's just waiting to trap water and screw things up. I was lucky enough to catch it early.
