Ho do you properly remove the rear large chrome cans on the back of the chassis?

Also, with regard to the grid cap wires, I am a fan of using new wire rather than trying to save and re-use the original wire. I like to use black test lead wire on an AW-23 for grid cap wire (and any other wire you replace). Cut the old wire then remove the coil cover can. Replace with 8 or so inches of new wire, long enough to comfortably feed through the can's hole. Then cut to length and solder on the metal cap that fits onto the tube cap.
I've found a small bit of heat may help a very tight can too...a hair dryer on high setting, try to warm as much of the lower part of the cover as you can. The chassis tends to draw heat from the base and allow the cover to expand slightly. Once off, clean both base and cover thoroughly.
Carefully! They slip over bases just like the other cans but sometimes the coil cans can be very difficult to remove. Try to tilt the cans from different directions but don't use so much force that the bases bend. Sometimes twisting will loosen a can but if tilting doesn't work, twisting will not work. Prying from the bottom tends to bend the base and can gouge the bottom of the shield can.
