How to get the NAB kernels off my JH110?

Alright guys, I realize this might be an incredibly daft question - please don't flame me for this.

But how do I take the NAB kernels off my MCI JH-110 A?
The thing is I havn't used 1/4" tape for a long time and when I did it was for small Fostex eight track machines that only takes 7" reels. So it means I got loads of good 1/4" on 7" reels but nothing on 10,5".

Good day to all of you.

Twist the knurled knobs counter-clockwise.

I'm not gonna flame you - you're using an analog machine!

Remember, you can't spell "Analog" without anal or log...

Excellent, thanks a lot dude
Now I'm just waiting for a power supply cable for the transport and then its possible to judge its condition. It was a gift from a mate and if it works I can do pure (or a bit dirty TBH since the multitrack is a Fostex, but I'm broke and mostly record rock and roll anyway) AAA if need be - and I can find a record cutting facility that takes tape.

For the last comment, very true

Stuck

Sorry to bother you again but it seems stuck, guess it has been sitting there for the past 40 years.
Any advice?
Suppose WD40 would be too crude a tool

WD-40 might not be the best idea.
Can you post a photo?

Better late than never I guess. Sorry about the delay, been too busy either recording or recovering from recording.

Still can't get them off after following the instructions. Would a rubber pliar be a bad idea?

No wd40 or anything that can drip down inside the motor.

Take vice grips to the locking nut (silver in my picture) to grab tight enough to break it loose You may need to buy a replacement afterwards. New ones can be found if needed. I am guessing the metal part inside that grabs is either corroded to the stem of the motor of the threads are stuck. just try some muscle.

Here is what you are dealing with on the inside. See pic


MCI uses locking VIF NAB hub adapters
