Finally, what kind of washer is supposed to go under the needle valve?
In most rebuild kits it is either a brass or aluminium washer. I think they give you a 1 & 1.5mm washer in the kit. From memory you should install the 1.5mm.
The other thing is- there are two types of needle valve. Some have a ball bearing in the end of the shaft, and need a thicker washer, and the ones with the solid shaft take the thinner washer. It is only the original valves that I have seen with the ball though.
Is it possible that you guys are talking about the float valve? The needle
valve is a different part.
Yes I was talking about the float valve.
