: Any helpful hints on rebuilding the heat riser, specifically pulling the shaft to free the counterweight, washer, spring and butterfly valve? Seems like the counterweight and butterfly valve are not included in the rebuild kit and need to be removed without destroying them.
There is a posting and some good pictures on a post tiltled "Heat riser", see the follow up by Jonathan 4-7-05. Hope this helps, as I have the same chore. A little PB Baster for a month now and I'll be ready for the torch or sawsall, these are allways rusted beyond recovery they'll allways bust out, Buy a tap and easy out set and sharpen those drill bits. Good luck Gary
