Hi,

Just wondering what the procedure is for changing a leaking hydraulic jack on a Riello G5 burner? un-mounting it from the burner is no problem, but I'm wondering how you disconnect the oil pipe at the jack end. There appears to be a knurled nut on the top but this seems to be stuck solid. What tool would you use? I'm ok with the water side of things but am very wary of oil lines!

Edit: looking at a few posts on here and on other forums looks like I might be better off removing the jack and shutter altogether and blanking of the port on the pump... What would you do?

Thanks
Simon

Use Gland nut pliers on the knurled section, The hex head will round off.

If the boiler is balanced flue you may get fumes when it turns off, if removed.

I think I'll replace the entire ram - they can be had cheap enough on line. Have got the old one off now, so it's a two minute job.

Thanks
