I have been trying to remove these darn screws from the head pipe for over a year. Now that I have a build about to start that will require this pipe, I was forced to get these screws out ASAP.
I tried using a torch and heating them up. Red hot and still no budge. I thought the salt had these stuck forever.

Then someone told me to put the head pipe into the BBQ or oven for 2 hours at 400 degrees. Well it didnt take even an hour and the screws came right out!

The aluminum head pipe heats up and expands just a bit more than the stainless steel screws. I let the head pipe warm up at 400 degrees, then put on some leather gloves and took an allen wrench to the screws and it eventually turned super easy! AMAZING!
