talcum powder added to ship supplies
will powder the 'babies bums' to ease passage
otherwise tried pressure with no avail; just adds up to pressure both ways & pressurises nylon & foam to build up strength (volume compressed = added density)
thanks for tip anyway

Is it possible to apply either air or water pressure to the PVC in the opposite direction that caused the jam? Perhaps with the pressure applied to you can tug on the leader lines and cables one at a time to see if you can find a combination that works.
One simple thing that has often helped me with this type of rewiring is to coat the pull lines, wires and tube with talcum powder. It can greatly reduce the friction and thereby the risk of a jam or damage to a wire. I don’t think that the talc causes any problems other than being a little messy.
Best of luck,
