Well that did not go as planned.
Taking that heater valve apart was one thing. Putting it back together again
The copper tabs are in good shape and it fits back into the base plate well enough but the tabs do not come through the face plate enough to bend them back over to secure it together.
I guess what happened is that the "light" hammering I did to straighten the copper tabs also bend the whole copper flange out of shape so that the tabs are at different heights now.
I'll try again tomorrow but I have to figure out how to fix this flange. Its about $110 bucks for a new valve.Attach file
