Thats a good one, but I'm dyslexic, so running it backward will be like running it backward.

A frozen toilet valve is fairly common. One year I forgot to blow out that line and run antifreeze through and ours cracked. Other things to forget are the sink sprayer and the outside shower.

You must have an improved part. The one I replaced looked just like your old one. The old valve was a POS cheap design.

Hi Perry
That part is actually for a different toilet model and since this place had this only part on their stock and for 10$ cheaper...(it looks like it's been sitting there for a WHILE) we decided to get it and figure it out later about how to adapt.
I didn't set up the toilet yet since we decided to replace the floors and that was documented as well and will be the subject for another thread.
But hope to be done soon, after floors, plumbing, after that polishing and clearance marker lights and ready to roll, so a lot on the plate!!
Camera is totaled so will be hard to document everything but looking on ebay for a decent one at a good price.

JB Weld didn't help with the hope of keeping the "new" but cracked valve..
Got a new valve today and ready to get this done..
Will keep this active and trying to document the placing and replacing pics posted...we own that to RogerDodger

Use your camera's MACRO function for closeups. Hard to see anything if you don't.
