Should I just suck it up and replace the valves? If so, is there an easy.. no, i mean, a less hard way to access those valves? Any and all ideas are welcome!
Here is a link where I wrote a "How-to

As far as repairing your valve with a repair kit
, forget it. The two plastic tits that are on the gate valves are broken.
