    ULE Feedneck Removal

    What is the best/easiest way you guys have found to remove the stock freedneck from a ULE body?

    Also will THIS feedneck work on the ULE body?

    Thanks!

    Strap wrench. If loctited you can try boiling it for a bit to loosen it up. If that doesn't work you can always try a pair of pliers. To be quite honest the stock feednecks are worthless so messing them up isn't a big deal. If you really have a tough time with it you can drill a hole all the way through and use a screw driver through the holes to twist it out.

    Yes that feedneck will work.

    Quite often, boiling can't get the temperature high enough to break the Loctite bond. You'll need an oven. Then use a strap wrench to turn it out.
    Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.

    Just like a strap wrench, a heat gun is a relatively inexpensive tool that everyone should own. I think they're either $10 or $12 from Harbor Freight. That gets the job done in a few seconds.

    While I agree to a degree, why spend $20-30 on strap wrenches and heat guns to remove a.. and I'm being generous $5 part? Drill a hole in it, wrench it off or whatever and throw it away.

    i always use my hands,
    with a little help from show mechanix gloves and a strip of rubber backed shop carpet.gives no slip and comes right off.
    i hold the feedneck wraped in carpet rubber and my hand, then i stick a nylon or wood dowel rod through the body and start twisting.

    takes a few tries, but i have yet to come across a stock ule feedneck that i couldnt take off, and i have come across alot of bodies.
    *no damage, and anyone who has meet me wich are few, im am by no means a gorilla of strength.
    My sydarm weighs less than yours!!!
