i read different accounts that the front end cap is rocksett or locktighted in. What is the best way to jail brake it so i can get the baffle stack out?

If it's Rocksett you can submerge it in water, that should break the bond.



Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

I am soaking it now. I just need to find a thin wrench to help pull it off/out. Then i think i can use AAC's baffle stack remover.

If this is a first or second gen sealed Pilot, the whole can is held together with red Loctite 272 and primer. The cans in question actually assembled from the rear; the front end cap was installed first with Loctite and primer, allowed to set up, then the baffles were installed from the rear. The baffles were situated in the tube by threading in an encapsulator, again with Loctite 272 and primer, followed by the rear end cap and the stainless thread insert.

It will be difficult-impossible to get the front end cap off without seriously damaging or destroying it. You might consider sending it to one of the outfits that offers jailbreaking services. I truly wish that this was something that we could offer, but it's not something that is in the cards right now.

Reach out to me if you have any questions,
