Water heater electric element replacement
Iím trying to remove the old element and itís not cooperating. Using a 1 1/2 6 point deep socket with an 18 inch 1/2 inch drive breaker bar. The element has very little area for the socket to grab and itís keeps slipping off the hex nut. Iíve been applying PB Blaster For two days and have been tapping the face of the hex with a flat tipped screwdriver and hammer. Iíve had help as well. One holding the socket onto the hex but the other using the breaker bar. Anyway, thoughts? 2003 Dutch Star.
