dump valve on '67 Safari
I've removed the dump valve after being unable to stop leaking at the gate by cleaning out the groove with my toothbrush. Removal should facilitate subfloor replacement. I'm thinking that a new valve, probably AS part 08706, would be more likely to perform longer than just replacing gaskets. Removal of the valve was challenging because the lower two nuts were corroded and access was limited. Finally I cut off these bolts, which may have been a major mistake. Were these bolts part of the outlet permanently adhered to the tank or a part that can be removed and bolts replaced? See photos. Hmmm, maybe a bolt stretcher...
