insight bolt disassembly problem

So I recently got an insight/victus and I went to service the bolt and and I found that the back part and the can will not unscrew from each other. I have tried a wrench and and a strap wrench in order to get enough grip to unscrew them but there isn't enough surface to get enough grip for leverage to separate them. Any ideas?

Thanks

The can only comes apart in one place to create 2 halves.

Shouldn't be that hard to unscrew it.

Previous owner may have used loctite or an oring to np keep the can and back piece from unscrewing while shooting.
I would wrap one part I a town and put it into a vice. Strap wrench on the other part and see if you can lossen it that way.

I had the same issue with my used VIS that I purchased.

The answer: Canon Plug Pliers

These are like channel locks but with a soft rubber grip for the teeth. This soft rubber is great at gripping on to metal (clean lube off first) and won't scratch into it.
