The slider valve is closed

The rod comes all the way out ? Of the assembly

Take the rod go to the hardware store

By the next size larger "all thread rod"

Grind/sharpen the tip so it will start into the existing stripped hole is the valve slider

Drill out the entry hole where the rod goes into the assembly

Screw in the new oversize rod you made
And open the dump valve

Now you can install a new valve assembly

OOPS missed the JB WELD worked
good, now onward to the replacement

If we diagram the sentence (y’all remember how to do that) ROD is the subject, the (subject) pulled out. Not the slider. Yes the tank is full. The long screw idea didn’t work. Probably because the screw is the same diameter as the ROD so the threads had nothing to grip. Hoped applying pressure while screwing would allow the screw tip to bite but didn’t. Mixed up some jb weld and put a dab on the end of the ROD. Let set up overnight and will give it one more try this am. I WILL try to reinforce this area when installing a new assembly.


I'm glad the JB weld worked !!! It's amazing what you can fix with that stuff. (Though I have found times it didn't work too)

But, I don't remember how to diagram a sentence. In fact, I don't think that I've ever heard of it. I don't think they taught that in MN when I was a boy. Maybe they do now.
