Default Re: Copper Tubing Fuel Tank

You should be able to unsolder the piece using one torch like SB says, and Bairdco makes a good point. I have used bricks successfuly to heat metal. If you could find some old firebricks from a woodstove they are best. Someone suggested fluxing the joints as you heat and I also agreed that it should help. For $15 bucks you can get a torch and have a go at it Like Bairdco says, just keep running the flame around the piece to get everything up to temp and it should come off. Good Luck, Dan
