Lots of heat. So I had to remove the 338 BA brake on my awsm a while back. I used a propane torch to heat the red locktite that was used on the brake. I heated over the brake where the threads for the barrel would be. I stopped periodically to try and break it loose. It took a few tries. Today I started to thread it back on a different ai barrel (AXMC) and the brake did not want to thread on very far, maybe a few turns before it started locking up. I've felt threads that are tough due to carbon buildup but this seemed a bit different. I am curious if I ruined my brake or if I just need to give it some elbow grease. The threads are the standard ai pattern; I checked and the 2 port AI brake threads on the barrel with no problem. Ideas? Should I just buy a new brake?
