1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    Thank you.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Are you having problems getting the whole inlet valve assy out of the end of the cylinder, or the inlet valve itself out of the inlet valve housing?

    If it's the former, the inlet valve assys can deform around the three radial screw holes; causing localised raised areas that can bind on the holes in the main tube upon attempted removal. It sometimes helps to oil the offending areas and insert three longer bolts into the holes in the housing and use the extra leverage to work the housing rotationally as well as backwards and forwards to free things up a bit. Make sure to screw in the bolts until they bottom out (but don't over-tighten them) and not to damage the edges of the holes in the cylinder with the exposed threads on the bolts.

    Once there's a gap between the end of the inlet assy and cylinder you can often grip it and work it out - resist the urge to lever it with something hard or grip the end cap in an unprotected / over-tightened vice ;)

    Once out the high spots on the inlet assy can be carefully dressed down with a jeweller's file and the inlet assy trial fitted to the cylinder to check for an easy fit / witness marks on remaining high spots.

    If you're having issues with the inlet valve sticking in the housing, unscrew the retainer and spring from the rear of the assy (if you haven't already) and push the resulting exposed hole for the inlet valve into a pile of rags; fit the fill adaptor and give it a short sharp blast of air from the bottle - that usually gets them out ;)
