I have a bike with a black, powder coated Campagnolo seat post stuck in a butted Columbus seat tube. Normally, I spray WD40 on seat post and let it work its way in for a few days and tap with a rubber hammer and they will unstick. But this vintage bike has red paint on the tubes from a 1980 formula for red from Porsche that I would like not to harm with solvent. And I'm also concerned the solvent effect of WD-40 might harm the black powder coating if I leave it on for several days to work in. Any suggestions on how to unstick a powder coated Campy seat post from a Columbus seat tube. This bike is the only one in the stable that I am fanatically devoted to. I don't want to make a mistake, but I have to unstick the seat post to ship it.
