    Default Powerhead

    Anyone know how to get a stuck bullet out of a powerhead outside of shooting it? Seems as though salt and corrosion have caused it to be stuck and I am not looking to start pushing it out from the front. Any solvent or solution to free the corrosion that has worked in the past would be appreciated.

    I have tried a ton of things, the only thing that worked for me was throwing it overboard and grabbing another one and learning from my mistake.
    Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.

    I ended up tossing it as I tried a few things and thought a funeral or bullet hospital removal bill was not worth the replacement cost....oh well

    Shoot something underwater. Now you have an "UNLOADED" powerhead witch can be punched out from the front.
