Make sure the maxi-paw is free of debris. Clean it out with a hose. If your wrench still wont work you can try grabbing the neck of the innards with some channel locks and unscrewing it. Possibly doing both at once will work.

If the wrench doesn't work for you, move on - replacing a Maxipaw with anything else may cost you coverage - it all depends on the particulars of your system

I take it you are saying take out the whole thing - guts and the body - and replace w/ a new one?

My original plan was to replace the guts w/ PGP-ATR. Given this experience w/ MP, I want to use something different.

What rotor would you suggest?

Rainbird Maxi-paw guts wont come out.

I am having trouble getting the guts of Rain-Bird Maxi-paw out of the casing.
I am using the special wrench but the corners of the internal assembly where the wrench is supposed to grip have worn out and become rounded - so no hold.

Question: short of breaking the guts ( I'd rather not damage the pipe connection the outer casing) is there a way to dis-mental the guts of Maxi-paw from the top? All suggestions appreciated.
