Other end had the same result (Ricks method must have loosened then for me
As you can see in the picture, there is a step inside, so it was never going to get punched through as was recommended by the local hydraulic boys
Once those bits were out there was another brass shaft inside and that pushed through, but there is no crud in there, so that section didnt need to be pulled apart.
But it is nice to know how it is done and nice to know that I can service it anywhere if I have the right Orings (I have several spares of each Oring, Brass fitting and olive used)
The bits from inside
Last night I had an email from Teleflex US with a PDF.
It shows what bits are supposed to be in there.
None of mine had spring # 3 , though my parts do have the receptacle for it
And I dont have Oring #9 , so its hard to imagine an effective seal as the ball would be sitting on top of the pin.
I am waiting for a reply back from teleflex , (maybe earlier models were different) before putting it back together.
