From Gordon by email:
I am trying to replace the piston assembly on a Porcher Veneto.
I have the replacement piece but I cant figure out how to get the old
piece out. If you look at the diagram at
I have parts 4 & 5 removed, but I cant seem to get part "6" unscrewed
from the tank housing. It's loose but will not come out? There is
obviously a nut on the other side but I cant get it free. How do I
unscrew this bugger? Is there a tool I am missing? Do I have to remove
the whole tank to get this out? I have the replacement pieces and it
looks like there is a nut (unnumbered but is on the diagram) and a
Yeesh, I am longing for the old flapper days. Did I get a lemon in this
porcher it has only been in for less than a year....
Obliged for your help!
