Here is a pic of them both:

The electric heating element has the two wires attached. The anode rod, is to the bottom right of it.

Ooops, my bad. Anode rod 1 1/16", electric heater element 1 1/2". I'm going stir-crazy and this is just one manifestation of it. C'mon spring!

Reinstall with hardening Permatex - or teflon tape. Note that teflon tape will give you a false torque reading - if torque wrench says 60 you probably have 180lbs.

It's just pipe thread - 1/2 a turn past snug should do it - check it the first time you fire it up.

same thing I had - took the impact a bit to finally loosen it.
