After reading some more of the service manual, I went back and looked more closely at my Klixon valve. It looks like the tongue is toast, so I'm guessing this is just dead, right? No replacing this...

Just pulled the bearings off in advance of a short camping trip this week, having never pulled them before. Some pockmarks from the last 53 years of use, so I took them in to get...
