Skimer cut off valves

Postby jim » Thu 18 Jun, 2009 21:50

I have two valves I believe are skimmer cutoff valves that I can not move. I am wanting to vacuum and need to shut off one of them but they won't turn. This is a picture of them. I don't want to beat on them and break them but need to know how to get them to turn. I used penetrating oil but no luck. ... 0177-1.jpg ... 0178-1.jpg

Any advice will be helpful.
