valve removal problem

Mainly... how the EFF do you do it? It looks like I'm supposed supposed to slot the square end into the square hole, but it doesn't fit.

Huh? The old valves need a special valve tool. If you don't have one that's where I would start. There's a DIY valve tool thread on here and a few sources to buy them.

Sorry. Was frustrated and didn't type clearly. I have the tool. Got it from Titus. Just have no idea how to USE it. Tried with both ends. Nothing.

The square end of the tool removes the nut and the smooth end will screw into the valve end to pull valve out after you remove the nut.
Sometimes you need to file the square end of the tool a bit smaller - even taper the square end a bit. I have found sometimes there is a burr or two on the inside of the square hole nut. Might be your issue.
Boy howdy - I must say - taking your time the first time around is the best thing you can do -for yourself and for your marker.
Good luck and let us know how it goes.

I would echo what WALZ said. Go slow. You're working with brass that is don't want to mess up the nut or the valve.

Once you get the nut out, and screw the other end onto your might need to do a bunch of pulling and jiggling. this on the marker I sold you? Why are you taking the valve out? I put brand new seals in there before I sold it to you. If it's that marker, and you are taking it apart, I know for a fact there isn't a lead seal in it, so you shouldn't have to jiggle too much with the valve. I hate those lead washers.

Everyone failed to mention you have to apply pressure to the valve tool to push in the cup seal before the tool will engage the nut.....if the hole in the center of the tool is not deep enough....which most aren't.

Its ok guys I got yer back.
4 out of 5 voices in my head say i'm ok

Yes long beard its yours. I'm removing the valve for a new longer barrel and feed tube, to match Better with a quick change. I think the tool I got from Titus is just too bigm
