Frozen Stopcock on Ticon30
by Terry Williams
(Rainbow City Alabama)
Does anyone have any tips to loosen up a frozen bronze stopcock on a through hull fittin?
I had two stuck in the open position.
I got one closed with some PB Blaster but the 2nd one is stuck tight.
I don't want to put to much pressure on the darn thing.
Can they be heated up slightly or is this a dangerous line of thought.
The boat is in the water and dry.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
