my buddies slides are ground on with sand and heat and i was wondering how to get them off?
There is a tool, but its like 100 bucks.
I will get flack for this, but I put a vice grip on the side of the slide and hit it with a hammer. Just be careful to stay away from the rail and use a rubber mallet.[/b]
:div20: Have done it both of these ways, sometimes a lot of work but both work.A hammer and a flat screwdriver works well too.
Hold the screwdriver in the groove that the hyfax slide into and give 'er![/b]
Preference thing.. just the other day I got a call from a bud who needed help to get his suspension back in, it took 4 of us to get it back in. Becuase his tunnel was bent or something, was extremely hard to fit it back in (sled was 2003 Summit 800). I would just try it with the suspension in to start with.Make it easier and pull the whole suspension out to work on it.[/b]

Well since they are stuck on with sand and heat as he mentioned, I don't think a screw and vise grips will be that easy.You don't need the tool. Spray it with WD-40 then drive a 2" deck screw in the back end and pull it off with vise grips. I've even done this on doos with the narrow windows.[/b]
