{Collins} 30S-1 tube removal



Is there a trick to removing the 4CX1000A tube from the 30S-1? I am trying
to change out the existing tube with a new one and give it a rest. I bought
the amp last summer and this is my first attempt at removing the tube.

I can rotate the tube in the 30S-1 about 1/4 to 1/3 turn ccw but after doing
so, it will not lift out. I tried rotating it back and forth a few degrees
while lifting but still on luck.

Thanks,

Lloyd - K4HWB
