>>I like dxengineering parts; however, I installed my new th6dx this last

>> I bought it with the recommended stainless steel U-bolt clamps they sell

>> assembly in a vice to get enough torque on my wrench to finally get the
>> off along with using a spray lubricant.
>> The threads are ruined on the nut and the U-bolt since it seemed to cross
>> thread as it came loose for no apparent reason.
>> I would have hated to have been trying this on top of the tower hanging
>> a strap trying to get it apart.
>> Has anyone else had a problem like this, I remember it wasn't hard to
>> tighten when I assembled it as it went on very easily, just taking it off
>> was very difficult.
