Put all of the snake oil on it u want to. But when u get ready to free it up use engine oil. I'm not familiar with the streight 8 heat riser but they are all pretty mush the same.

Take a standard ball peen hammer and a drift and LIGHTLY drive on the end of the shaft parallel to the shaft from side-to side or end to end. DO NOT hammer on the cast iron weight as a lever!!!! It WILL break off. Work the shaft backand forth parallel to the shaft and twist the weight with your hand.
