    You can but spanners for them and you can use oil filter wrench but 8 would bother just leave it and use it. What ever you do don't clean it with solvent and then fire it. It will blow up.

    Plant based cleaner, citrus from memory
    I spray mine with WD40, once apart, then wipe off the excess with a paper towel

    Soaking it in really hot water for 1/2 an hour seems a plan, should soften all the goo, incl in the threads, nicely
    Let us know how you go.

    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    Carb clean might work too bro. Simple Green is amazing shit. As for undoing it, a couple of strap wrenches will work if you can get them. Trip to Repco! I also use lanocote on the threads so they don't lock up in the first place

    Yea simple green is some magic shit that I found in the Mrs box of tricks (minds out of the gutter, the box under the sink) it's mint for cleaning brass too, just give anything a soak in hot water and simple green and it comes up good as new. Think it's pine based or something.

    Tape the baffle sections to avoid scratching the finish and then use hose clamps to gain purchase with which to break them apart.

    Simple green must be completely rinsed from aluminium as it is corrosive to alloy, I presume same precaution might apply to duralium?
    They make a separate aircraft wash product for this reason.

    DPT has a good PDF on maintaining their supressors, it's been posted here before but I can't find a link on their website.

    Yep tape, hose clamps and a couple of crescents does the job nicely
