|Bill Allis said: (quoted from post at 09:18:43 10/22/13) When you do the o-ring replacement, do you HAVE to replace the rivet? Or can you just be careful and only open it one turn?|
I'm not sure what you mean by being careful and only opening something one turn. You HAVE to remove the rivet to get the stem of the valve out of the housing, and you have to get the stem out to replace the o-ring. If you want to try putting that same rivet back in once the o-ring has been replaced, you're welcome to try, but it will likely leak around the shaft of the rivet since the rivet is now loose in its hole. Tapping the hole and replacing the rivet with a screw has worked for most folks. This post was edited by Sean in PA at 06:47:57 10/22/13.
