Hey guys, just a quickie..

Trying to get into my Johnson DEQ2, And the screws on the back, (with the exception of one,) Are stuck tight. Tried pretty damn hard to get them out, but the thread in the top is camming-out.

Any suggestions how to get the buggers out? Don't want to keep jerking at them with a screwdriver incase they just round out.

Thanks.

Hmm. I have got a screw removal set in the garage. Drill the screws out then tap the case again for the bigger holes?

Do you want to keep the screws or not?

It'd be nice, but if I have to drill out, then I'll have to find new ones I guess. And find a tap set. Unless I have a screw remover small enough. You just drill a pilot hole and twist with a tap wrench until it forces screw out. It's whether i got one small enough.

They're pretty small. Probs too small for the removers, so drilling i guess. Suppose I'll look at the one hole from the screw i got out, get that size bit (or a tiny bit less?), and drill straight through the head.
