-   -   Fly High sac question... (http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=532150)

I have a 750lb sac that has the connections on the end for hoses, but I need to plug them as they will not be used in the integrated system. Problem is, there is lock-tite or something on the threads. I've tried heating it up to break them loose, but I almost burned the sac in the process and they wouldn't budge at all. Any ideas at all? If it helps at all, it looks like blue lock-tite was used.

Well if you can't get it off use a fly high quick connect and plug it with a piece of 3/4" hose. <BR><a href="http://www.wakeside.com/category/boat/ballast/ballast_fittings.do" target="_blank">http://www.wakeside.com/category/boat/ballast/ballast_fittings.do</a>

Call Fly High..>They'll explain how to heat it up with a hair dryer and what to do to remove. I called and they walked me through it.. Takes about 10 minutes to do.. you think you are tearing it up, but it works..

^^^^ did the same thing, it works great, but you really have to keep that hair dryer on their for a while.
