CPS removal question... rounded bolt and others
This is my first post to the site. I just picked up a 96 CCSB with 104K. The truck runs great and the body is in awesome shape.
I have been doing general maintenance to the truck, oil, filters, etc... and wanted to swap out the CPS as preventative maintenance. The current CPS is the stock one with 17 years and 104K miles on the clock. Needless to say the 10mm bolt it is in there tight and is not cooperating and has rounded off real good.
In my efforts to remove the CPS, I am wondering if I can bend the arm on the CPS bracket down to get to the bolt with vise grips?
The truck runs fine as is and is my DD right now, so I need to ensure the CPS stays fully functional until I can get that bolt out. I just want to make sure bending that bracket or cutting it off is not going to cause problems.
Thanks in advance.
