    Two ways both need three pairs of hands, first hold ends of the sections whilst the third person rotates the joints in a circular motion this causes a flexing of the joit and it will then come apart, second method is the same one on each end whilst the third person taps the joints with hand again the joint will pop and come apart, with a top 2/3 you may just get away with 2 people for the tapping method.

        if water is in the joint the tap method works better as it pushes the water..the rotation is better when joints arew stuck because of paste and groundbait ect

                by the sounds of it a bit late now.. but you need to hold the sections as close to the joint as u can otherwise the sections jus shear off
