I can't get the old Insinkerator model 77 off the mounting

Customer Question

I can't get the old Insinkerator model 77 off the mounting ring. I know I should just be able to use the tool to twist it to the right, but it won't budge. I have put some wd40 into the flange and have waited a while to see if the solvent would free it. I have used a hammer, although leverage and force are limited due to location. Any suggestions?

You turn the locking ring to the left not the right to release it.

Give that a try. If it still won't budge then let me know
