Clone vx bolt keg and reg stuck

Hey guys. I just picked up a used clone vx and for the life of me, I can't get the bolt keg unscrewed.. Same with the gladiator reg.. I've tried warm water.. Cold water.. Rubber gloves, no luck.. Any suggestions?

Next up to try would probably be a strap wrench.

Yeah pretty much a strap wrench. You can use a vice with thick rubber piece between the Jaws so it won't damage anything. I use a cut out piece of a rubber mud flap from a truck between the Jaws so I don't damage anything in the process. Be very careful not to apply to much pressure or you will crush it.

Can I do any damage with the strap wrenches? Like "deform" the bolt/valve keg

Anything is possible but you shouldn't. Just don't be in a rush and pay attention

Put a little bit of lube on the o-ring and threads on both sides of the valve keg that join it to other parts of the drivetrain and you'll never have a struggle removing it again. As for the reg I'm assuming the previous owner just cranked down on it way too much.

For a while I was sorely mistaken when I thought egos shot ok, then I discovered borgs, timmys and realized that egos are only good at being durable. With a small amount of loving your clone will be almost as efficient as an ego, but much smoother and quieter. You made a good move.
