I'm sure everyone has their own opinion on torch work, but come on....heating it up with oil temp you might as well use a hair drier instead of a torch.
With all due respect.
Its worked for me... I would say it was below freezing out when I did it, but it was a PITA until i let the thing idle for a bit and it came right off.
EDIT: reguardless, in the end i would still take it to the original place, and make them do it. That way if they mess it up, its on them.
