Any hints on how to remove a new isolastic from a front mount? I have intalled it and removed it before, but now it won’t budge. Any ideas will be appreciated. Thank you.
If I had a press I can see how that would work. I used a silicon lube to push it in by hand, same as I did last year, and I was able to push it back out after a time. But, this time I just screwed up and put it in backwards and it won’t budge. Thanks for responding.I had to use my press when I replaced mine last year. They had never been out until then though.
On installation, using Kleen-Flow synthetic grease (automotive used in brakes et rubber components) will prevent sticking in the housingPut my new ones in (With rubber grease.) for measurements, because I was moving the engine position.
Went to remove them and they were "Stuck".
Put a screwdriver down the side, ensuring that I didn't damage the rubber, sprayed in some graphited lube and "Walked" the screwdrier around the rubber.
Came out by hand easily, and iso' doesn't appear to have been affected by the spray.
I do the same with handlebar grips. Once all the hardware is out of the way, push a long thin screwdriver as far down the grip as you can, then push the straw from your WD 40 or similar lube along the gap next to the screwdriver blade, give it a good blast, remove both and twist. Bingo! Pops off in an instant.
