You better believe it! I want this to go a lot smoother when I do it again in 250,000 miles.
Thanks so much for the ideas ... I hadn't thought of using a punch to rotate the metal part. I tried whacking it from underneath just thinking it might knock something loose but, a side blow would probably help a lot more. That's why I thought sawing it apart might help ... but I'd much rather not enter that battle if I can get it loose while intact. I'll try it tomorrow!
I appreciate the encouragement ... it's so frustrating when one gets really, really close to completing a big step and then one little thing (or big thing) gets stuck! Then again I guess the more gets stuck, the more I learn about design and physics.
