All: I'm temporarily removing the stovetop in my 1980 Trillium
in order to gain access to the area beneath the sink and to clean the stove. It seems fairly straightforward to remove (four screws hold the stove it to the countertop). I have turned off and bled all gas from the lines.
My question is, the gas line comes in the back of the stove and goes to the front. At the front, it's attached to a distributor for the burners. How do I remove that connection? I tried to unscrew them a bit with a wrench but it seems to torque the gas line a bit when I do that. Since copper is fairly soft, I don't want to manhandle it too much.
Do I hold one of the nuts with a wrench and then twist the other with another wrench? And is it a right-righty, lefty-loosed situation or are gas lines different? Thanks in advance for your help.
Wrench in hand,
