NM 800 Pill removal

Postby blueeyes » 12 Dec 2017, 11:04

Hi guys I have an NM 800 with a IR pill which I bought off a guy on hear I think , anyway the pill is flickering and I have been reading that it could be a 2 cell driver in a one cell torch, so have ordered a single cell driver, but cant get the pill bloody out can get it to move so far one way the locks up and the same the other, are these reverse threaded thanks in advance

got it but hell was it tight normal thread anti clock wise to loosen, any way another question there seems to be a make shift washer under the pill to make contact which makes me think this is not a NM pill , or should there be some other washer there lol
