evening all :D

any ideas on how to tackle this? its my heaver valve - unfortunately it's siezed on cold

how big of a job is it to get out and is it a heater out job or can it be tackled in situ?

can i remove the innards and leave it on constantly hot? anyone done that before?

they sometimes free off with careful excercise and lots of penetrating fluid - or you could just replace the innards

managed to free it off but it's now leaking so looks like new innards req'd
before i spend £40 i wonder if i can replace the shaft seal on the one i have? is it just an o-ring or something else?
