Postby Buster » Sun May 15, 2016 17:19

I am trying to repair my broken EWL 1/4 pint Paragon Handpull, the pot is cracked near the top and is leaking. Has anyone got any info on how to take aprt the cylinder, I have tried all ways to seperate it but no joy. Any help appreciated. or a link to a breakdown, anything.

"Where are you from" asked the man....."Swindon" I replied......"What part" he said...."Well, all of me" I replied.

Got any pictures?

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

I maybe wrong but I think once all the fixings are undone it is just a case of pulling it apart. They can be very stiff.

Thanks Joe, I tried that but it wont budge, to make the best of it, it was a brand new one as well. Anyone know if it unscrews maybe ??.

Here is a new one:-

The bottom unsrews ewl advise using a belt spanner however if you have a spanner or as I used a stilson that fits the bottom nut part then get a pan of water boiling and hold the bottom in there for a minute then get the spanner on it straight away and it will unscrew
, best to leave it bolted to wooden base as its eaisier to handle

Yes, as Martin says it unscrews at the bottom. I clamped the big hexagonal bit at the bottom in a vice and then managed to unscrew, turning the main barrel by hand.
