Default Body Connect Stuck

I got for free (now I know why) a few cornies. I cannot get the connects to loosen with my rachet wrench. Anyone know what might work. Thanks.

are you talking about your posts? They usually arn't that tight, just sit/straddle the keg on the floor and use a closed wrench 7/8" I believe. Or if they are not leaking, just clean the kegs and use them withouth replacing the orings.

Cheater bar over the rachet will help....I know mine were on super tight first time I disassembled.

Soak upside down in a bucket of oxy or pbw with really hot water.

For the price you payed if you are still having trouble after a good soak you might want to run down to your local automotive maintenance center and have them take a wack at it with the impact wrench. I cant imagine that they would say no if you offered some home brew in trade.
