An on going battle with my VETUS fresh water
strainer has come to a head
. The cap is stuck, solid, no budging.
Last time this happened I used a shifter/crescent wrench/ adjustable wrench to pry it off, which of course resulted in me cracking the lid and using epoxy
to repair. For some reason it is stuck tight. It's a common problem with it. Last time I got it off I used Vaseline around the seal and thread.
I have taken the whole thing off so a vacuum is not the issue.
Any advice? It's the VETUS FTR 330 series. I have ordered new lids x 4 in case I have problems with the other ones.
The strainer is a filter for my Gensemer. As I have a lift
put,in the hull
with a strainer down there it's a redundant filter so I just joined the hoses, but I would like to put it back on as two are better then one.
