Relief Valve Inspection

Remove the relief valve.
Check to see if the steel ball inside the valve slides
smoothly when pushing it in with a wooden or other soft
rod, and see if it comes back to its seat by valve spring
Inspect the valve in its assembled state. Disassembly
and assembly may change the valve performance.
If any rough spots are found during above inspection,
wash the valve clean in a high-flash point solvent and
blow out any foreign particles that may be in the valve
with compressed air.
[A] Valve
[B] Spring
Clean the parts in a well-ventilated area, and take
care that there is no spark or flame anywhere near
the working area. Because of the danger of highly
flammable liquids, do not use gasoline or low flash
-point solvents.
If cleaning does not solve the problem, replace the relief
valve as an assembly. The relief valve is precision made
with no allowance for replacement of individual parts.
