But it will move. If it was seized solid you would also have massive corrosion in many other areas.
Thank you, I have tried a 3 foot long tube over the extension bar, which has almost disfigured its shape (the C ring) and still no success. I have soaked it gain overnight so hope today will bring some success. I appreciate your thoughts and silentservice in trying to save me expense where it may not be necessary. I will let you know the outcome
