Use a 1/2-inch open-end wrench to
separate the strainer halves from the foot-valve housing. Remove the bolt,
washer, and nut that fasten the flat-washer valve reinforcement plate and
valve together. Replace the valve if necessary. Assemble the pieces of the
foot-valve assembly by positioning the valve reinforcement plate against one
side of the valve. Then place the flat washer on the opposite side of the
valve. Fasten these parts together with a bolt, washer, and nut. Tighten
the parts wrenchtight. Lay the strainer halves on the bench with the bolt
holes alined. The strainer half must be on the bottom. Lay the assembled
valve as a unit flat across the strainer half with the three bolt holes.
