Gonna give some props to Mike on this on as the write up was a big help on what to expect when I got both valves apart.

It's pretty easy to do...just requires a little patience.

Not sure...haven't seen him post in a while. However, my time here has been limited a bit too with other stuff.

But, hope to be more of a contributor now that I've got another system on the truck.

I see Mike on facebook. I asked him where he's been hiding and he said he was taking a break for all the forums. He was active on many and maybe got burned out?

don't forget you will need a tiny tool such as this to get that spring out

http://www.mcmaster.com/#dental-picks/=l8yjal

and it will shoot across the room to never be found again if your not careful. So hold on to it.

I have cleaned all my stuff out a few times over the years and I have found that compressed air really helps better then anything to get all that crud out of the tiny crevices.

Also look out for too much play in the moving parts. if you find it has too much play in it and is not very snug then it is time for a new one. CV, PV, or whatever it may be. I have went through hell trying to figure out what was wrong with my system for months and thousands of miles last summer learning this lesson. I had these random pressure issues. And could not figure out what it was till i realized my valves were wore out and loos. so when try to wiggle the top half and if it feels at all loose get another one.

That is why after 95k on mine I just replaced it when it went, not that my time is so valuable, but D2 is. I figured it didn't owe me to much anymore.

Awesome write up!!!

Just did this with my purge valve, check valve, and pressure adjustment valve.

The purge valve cleaning was quite interesting. The magnet and the core had quite a bit if dried veg goo. Blown apart, the valve piston was stuck and had to be tapped out.

Everything came clean in my Harbor Freight ultrasonic cleaner.

Lets see if this solves the pressure problems.

I have been having a few CV issues, and really couldn't get to the bottom of it. I have never done this cleaning procedure, normally just pull it and soak it in brake cleaner, seemed to work fine. I did that with my CV and the plunger seemed to operate just fine. Just when I was putting it back in, I noticed this very small fleck. Took out a dental pick I picked up from a friend and pulled out this very small piece of something. Picture #1 shows the piece I pulled out sitting on the edge of the valve. So on my second (back up) CV I followed this procedure. Pic #2 is the separated pieces. Dental pick works great, although does take a little patience, a big magnifying glass (50 year old bi-focal eyes), bright light. It really helps to have a third hand. One to hole the base, one to hold the pick, and one to spin the lower piece. I was quite surprised how clean it was. so I lubed it up, now ready to go.
One thing I didn't see in the write up is another very small washer in the base. It will fall out, and you must be careful. It is in the middle of pic #3.
Pic #4 is for all you Rednecks out there
Can't thank you enough MDub, great write up. Helped me out a lot.
