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
