SDS Platform/Tank Plastics/Splitting
The centerpiece of the tank plastics is plastic welded with retaining lock washers through/around holes in the side pieces.
- The lock washers can be detached either with very focused heat application (a soldering iron works; a hot air gun will be less precise) or just taking a pair of pliers and carefully twisting each weld back and forth until it deteriorates and can be broken off.
- The centerpiece you remove will no longer be joinable the same way, but you can take a fresh one and make plastic welds to join it to the side pieces.
As of mid-2017, the Charge Tank plastic centerpiece is separately available under part number 24-08137 for $40 (without the plug bracket that is about $100, and without the retaining washers). The Power Tank plastics might presumably be separately available.
