I have had good luck bending it back the same way it got bent. Hitting it with a mallet and or protecting the piece with a block of wood to save the finish. No luck with the hydraulic press. And there are some things that will just not respond to any method and just fail as soon as they are bent. Locate a replacement first and things seem to work out. Try bending it first and be out of commission when it snaps. Murphy's Law. Mike
Another old timers trick is to rub bar soap on the part before heating. When the soap turns black the aluminum is the right temperature for working. Don't do this with a critical part you don't have spares for, it is as likely to break as bend.
