First time poster.
Had a Hayward Super II pump motor go out on me. The "POP" and blue spark made it pretty clear the motor was bad.
Anyway when I went to remove the motor housing one of the bolts holding it to the wet end just spun and wouldn't loosen. After sleeping on it, figured I might as well hacksaw the bolt head off. At least then the motor will be off and I can get a better look at what is going on.
Whats left of the bolt just spins along with the nut that's in the leaf basket housing. Has anyone had this happen and know some way to get it out? I tried putting some two part epoxy on the edge of the nut, hoping it would grip long enough for the bolt to break loose. It didn't.
Really not looking forward to replacing the whole assembly, because of one bolt.
