Remove the old valve components from the valve body with the included dowel. Thoroughly clean the interior/exterior of the valve body with isopropyl alcohol or a similar cleaning agent before replacing the components. Visually inspect the top and bottom of the bore for cracks/blemishes.  If excessive wear or cracks are visible, replace the valve body.
