Re: OT, how to seperate mast sections.



Rusty Jeep mechanics swear by a product called PB Blaster (I've found it at 
my local Carquest auto parts store).  Use it like you would Liquid Wrench 
or WD40.

Another option to consider is heat - using a propane torch to heat (and 
expand) the outer layer of tubing.
