    Sounds like a good plan. But I bet the turkey will disagree...

    Default another option

    If only 1 screw is tight.

    Remove the other screw and you can rotate the module to loosen the screw that will not come loose. This has worked for me everytime.

    If 2 screws will not loosen.

    I had one guy with a good wrench and I used a nail set and a hammer on the head of the screw. I gently tapped the screw as the other guy was putting pressure on it with the wrench.

    Give it a whirl

    Warning on using the mod to break loose the screw - DON'T FORCE! You could bend the mod....

    Other than "tapping" with a nail set and missing and smashing the cam, try a dremel tool and grind to "slice" a cut across the allen head. Once a good cut or slice you can use a small chisel, screw driver or nail set and gently tap the screw in the direction to loosen.

    And it is true of the allen head corroding to the cam. WD 40 and the likes don't penetrate and will break through corrosion. Use Liquid Wrench the supreme penetrating oil.

    If and when you break the screw loose or on another froze screw, when it breaks loose you will smell a sulfer like smell. That's corrosion.

    PB Buster is another good penetrating oil for such occasions. Once the old screw is out and you're ready to install a new one I recommend apply string wax on the screw threads then running it into the hole. This will act like a thread locker but doesn't seize up like your current situation and won't cause damage to the threads in the hole.

    I tried that a few days ago when I ran into the problem. The mod will unscrew from the thread slightly, but I think the head is gaulled into the cam. I could take the one screw out, and move the mod back and forth, but it never loosened the other screw at all. Figure after season's over, I'll either fix it, or break it. lol
