Rust rust rust, and seizing

Postby boondock29510 » Wed Mar 06, 2013 7:20 pm

So, I get ready to tear down the used 11-87 I picked up, pull off rubber butt pad, and gauk at the rust on the action spring tube/nut. No flat head on earth would take this thing out.

I have an idea though... In the mide of the nut, theres a hole. Can I tap it out, screw in a bolt, tack weld the bolt, and back that thing out?

I'd take it to a smith if it were mine.

I made a large flat tool that fits the slot out of tool steel. I then soak the nut with a pentrating oil. Use a large cresent wrench on tool.

Here is the tool, 7/8" Speedbore bit. It fits the nut tight and you can use a wrench on the hexed end. I would use some "Kroil" pentrating oil on the nut. Here is a link to the best pentrating oil I have found.

How old is the 11-87? Does it have the stock with the space for a shotgun shell on each side?

I ground this down just for the purpose of removing that nut on 11-87's. It has never failed to remove them yet no matter how siezed they were. a little Kroil and the impact takes them out every time. :biggrin:

I dont know the year. I put an easy out to it and the nut split, :(. Ordered the replacement and pulled it apart, cleaned it, and put it back together. Its good to go.


Now, waterfowlhunter, you hurt my heart with your pic. You could have at least used a craftsman to grind down! That was tool abuse to that snap on lol.

Snap-on, craftsman, Mac, Proto. There all the same to me and I abuse them all equally :lol3:
