    They (Portland ABC) are a pretty good group- I wouldn't be surprised if someone might come out and give you a hand. I built a homemade manometer to balance mine, but I found the starting point...

    It's been awhile, but I'm pretty sure I used the tools in the tool kit to get mine out. I think it was easier to work from the bolt side (Allen wrench?) than the nut side.
